    BA Hons. in English Literature and History, Oxford Brookes University
    MA Intercultural Communication, Bedford 
    PhD (in progress), UCL Institute of Education

  • I have worked at Brookes since 2000. I work half my time in Oxford Brookes International, teaching on the Foundation and University English courses, and half my time in the Department of History, Philosophy and Religion, teaching undergraduate courses for two programmes: Communication, Media and Culture and English Language and Communication.

    After completing a BA in English Literature and History, I moved to Paris where I lived for 15 years. Whilst there, I worked for the French Department of Education. On my return to England, I studied for an MA in Intercultural Communication under Professor Helen Spencer-Oatey.

    In 2010 I enrolled as a research student at the Institute of Education, London. My research is into the hidden dimensions of student writing made invisible my normative assessment approaches. I have achieved my MPhil upgrade and am working towards completion.
