I graduated in Language Teaching and Translation (Portuguese/English) in Brazil, where I taught EFL. I taught ESOL and Portuguese in the UK, where I did my postgraduate studies. I did my MA in English Language Teaching at Thames Valley University (present West London University) and conducted my doctoral research on language and identity issues at the University of Southampton. I completed my PGCE in Teaching and Management in Higher Education at Goldsmiths, University of London and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I joined Brookes in June 2015 as a Senior Lecturer in TESOL and Applied Linguistics. In August 2018, I became a Visiting Academic.
