I am passionate about teaching but also about learning; I would describe myself as a committed life-long learner. When I returned to the UK in 2015, it was to pursue postgraduate study at the University of Birmingham. This experience has shaped my research interests since then.
My MA dissertation was a narrative inquiry into language teacher cognition, more specifically, the role of moral values in primary language teacher lives. This stimulated an interest in exploring the moral, ethical, social and political dimensions of language teaching and learning in an age of globalisation.
I am currently carrying out doctoral research at the University of Leeds. My project is a phenomenological study which explores the ethics of encountering the Other in the context of adult ESOL education.
