My research interests focus on academic writing, specifically source use and plagiarism. I completed my PhD in Education at IOE, University of London in the development of source use by international postgraduate students. I have also been involved in a long-term research collaboration with Dr John Morley, the creator of Academic Phrasebank at the University of Manchester. We are researching the role and use of formulaic phrases in academic literacy and their relationship with plagiarism. My recent research involves academic integrity resources, and the investigation of independent learning.
