I began my career in teaching English in 2014, working as an English as a Second Language teacher in Poland. I then pursued a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at the University of Birmingham. Before joining the BIA, I taught ESOL for several years. My passion for research led me to pursue a PhD at the University of Birmingham, where I am currently investigating the relationship between language and gesture in bilingualism.
