Career Summary

Biography

I am an Associate Lecturer within the English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, where I coordinate the Study of Language (Linguistics) course at the Callaghan campus. I have a great deal of experience teaching linguistics within the School of Humanities and Social Science, and as an Academic Language and Learning Adviser.

Research Expertise
I have three areas in which I am actively researching. My main research focus is on English-German language contact, specifically the influence that English (in the form of anglicisms) has on the German language at a morphological and sociolinguistic level. A further area of research is within the field of Widening Participation (Enabling Education), namely improving student engagement. 

Teaching Expertise
Recipient of The English Language and Foundation Studies Centre Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning 2014. I have a strong background in teaching Linguistics, Academic Literacies and English Language at the University of Newcastle, and in Germany at the University of Passau and the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg. I currently coordinate the Study of Language (Linguistics) course for Open Foundation at the Callaghan campus.
