Having qualified from the University of Cambridge with an Honours Degree in Economics, I then completed a Ph.D in Development Economics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. My teaching career has always been in Higher Education, including Birkbeck College, University of London, the University of Westminster, the University of Reading and various departments at Oxford Brookes University.
My specialism is International Development, and I for my PhD. I researched agricultural development and poverty in India. I have also done research for Elizabeth House, University of Oxford relating to female infanticide in South India.
Within a teaching context, I am particularly interested in the best ways to teach complex content materials, e.g. economics, to non-native speakers. I am especially concerned with finding how to most effectively overcome the difficulties learners have when confronted not only with new vocabulary, but new lexis that carries with it a great deal of underlying conceptual content.
