Personal profile


I am a Senior Teaching Fellow in Pre-sessional English and TESOL at the University of Portsmouth. My teaching responsibilities include coordinating the assessments for the Pre-sessional English programmes as well as leading the MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL.

I have been involved in course and materials writing for many years, particularly for EFL and EAP. My research interests relate to the use of humour in language teaching, material writing, and issues specific to EAP.
