I did my undergraduate study in English Translation back to my country, where the linguistics modules I took plus my experience of English teaching motivated me to further develop my knowledge in this area. Having done my MA in Applied Linguistics for Language teaching at University of Southampton in 2011, I decided to pursue my education at a PhD level at the same university after a one-year gap.

Research interests

I did a PhD in intercultural language education, where I designed and delivered a course in order to integrate the element of cultural awareness into classroom language teaching. This was under the supervision of Dr. Julia Huettner and Dr. Will Baker.

My other research interests include English language teaching, culture representation in textbooks, and English as Lingua Franca.
