    Personal profile


    I'm a Lecturer in Academic Writing within the Centre for Academic Writing at Coventry University and an ASPiRE Research Fellow in the Centre for Art, Memory and Communities (CAMC).

    I've had a varied academic career to date with teaching and research appointments in Spain, Saudi Arabia, China, the USA and the UK. At Coventry, I'm particularly interested in how students and academics alike create different levels of meaning within their academic texts through the use of specific features of language. This interest cuts across various boundaries but mainly focuses on the use of corpus linguistics to understand writing in the disciplines, writing genres and writing assessment more broadly.

    Vision Statement

    I have an interest in learning about how students navigate their way through learning to write at university. This interest is firmly rooted in understanding what successful writing 'looks' like and how that mapping might differ according to different student populations, disciplines and writing genres. It is my hope that by knowing more about successful writing, we can instil developmental practices into our students  to support them as they become members of their respective academic and professional communities.
