Senior Lecturer English for Academic Purposes

I am a Senior Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and Director of Studies for the University's Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes courses which run from April to January for international students joining the University to begin degree study in September, October and February.

I am also the English Scheme Co-ordinator where I co-ordinate all the In-sessional modules international students can study alongside their degree courses to support their learning and develop their English language skills.

Teaching and supervision

I am currently Module Leader for the Level 1 and Level 3 English for Academic Purposes and Level 3 English for Business Studies In-sessional modules which run from September to June and all the Pre-sessional modules which run from April to January.

Research interests for potential research students

I have a professional membership of BALEAP which is the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes and this is my current research area.

I regularly attend events and conferences as a presenter as well as an observer in order to maintain current relevant knowledge in the field.

I also hold research interests in the area of Digital Pedagogies for Teaching and Assessment and Facilitating Change.


I am currently studying a Professional Doctorate in order to further investigate how to facilitate change within an organisation when navigating a transition from traditional paper based pedagogies and assessment methods to a digital approach.
My subject specialism is English for Academic Purposes.
My first degree is in Business Management and having worked in office based environments for several years I decided on a career change and studied for a teaching qualification in English as a Foreign Language in Prague. I taught English abroad in the Czech Republic and Italy for several years before returning to the UK. I began working at the University of Sunderland in 2002 as an Academic Tutor and achieved a permanent post in 2008 after completing my Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning.
