Research Interests

As a trained Secondary English, and ESOL teacher, I am interested in teacher training and development. My research interests lie within the broad field of Education Linguistics. In particular, I am interested in research that aims to help educators improve pedagogic approaches to teaching and assessment to enhance students’ academic literacy performance. Further, I am interested in unpacking the social, linguistic, and educational relationship between education attainment (with a special interest in literacy skills development) and low socioeconomic contexts.
