About me

I have previously taught English as a second language in Italy, Mexico and the UK, and have trained language teachers on several pre-service and in-service programmes of teacher education, including the CELTA and DELTA schemes, as well as a number of projects on continued professional development in language teaching.

My main research interests lie in the relationship between globalization, language diversity and intercultural communication. In particular, I am currently investigating English as a lingua franca (ELF), and compiling a corpus of spoken ELF discourse for the purpose of describing and theorising current developments in the lexis, grammar and pragmatics of English in lingua franca settings. Part of this research entails consideration of the implications of the ongoing internationalization of English for language teaching and language teacher education. I also coordinate a research forum in ELF at King’s College London.
