I joined Modern Languages and Linguistics at Southampton in 2019 as a postgraduate research student in the iPhD Programme in Applied Linguistics: ELT. My main area of research is critical literacy and critical applied linguistics and how to incorporate them into English language teaching, especially for academic purposes.

I obtained my BA in English (first-class honours) at Naresuan University and later my master’s degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. After graduation, I worked as a part-time lecturer at Chulalongkorn University Language Institute for one year.

My current position is a full-time lecturer of English at Chulalongkorn University Language Institute in Bangkok, Thailand. Prior to joining Southampton, I taught foundation English, English for Academic Purposes, and English-Thai translation for university students. I also taught and co-taught IELTS (reading), basic writing courses, pre-sessional English for undergraduates (presentation skills), convened extra-curricular English activities, and designed various reading tests for educational and public/private sectors in Thailand. During 2017-2019, as Head of Seminar Organising Unit, I helped organise annual international conferences in ELT hosted by Chulalongkorn University Language Institute in Thailand.

Research interests

My other research interests include learner individual differences, language education, critical applied linguistics, critical literacy, English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and English as a Lingua Franca (ELF).
