Current state of research and teaching activities
I obtained my Masters in Education (EFL) from the University of Manchester (UK) in 2003 and a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Essex (UK) in 2015.
My research interests include the application of genre-based approaches in academic writing and the investigation of metadiscourse: how students represent themselves in their writing. I am also researching how reflective practice can be utilized in teacher training.
