Personal profile

Research interests

I have been working in the field of Applied Linguistics and TESOL as a researcher, lecturer, teacher trainer and ESP/EAP teacher in several higher education contexts including Hungary, Germany, Turkey, Lithuania, and the UK. Currently, I teach several units and supervise dissertations on the MA TESOL programme. My research interests include corpus-based discourse analysis, corpora in English language teaching and learning, teaching ESP and EAP, and intercultural communication. My current research projects focus on the corpus-based discourse analysis of health-related lexis and the challenges and opportunities of learning and teaching in multicultural and multilingual educational contexts. I would like to hear from students interested in pursuing doctoral study in these areas.
