Research Interests:
• Critical Thinking in English Language Teaching: a focus on the use of cognitive questioning.


After completing a BA (Hons) Education, I then took a post in East Asia where I taught firstly in private education and then worked with a variety of companies, designing curricula to suit their specific language needs.

I then worked in international marketing and brand sourcing, assisting in the creation and implementation of developmental strategies, both cultural and linguistic, for building business relationships between Asia and the UK.

I returned to work at Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2011 and became module leader for Critical Thinking in the English Language Training Centre (ELTC). I have recently been involved in the development of the new TESOL degrees within the Humanities Matrix.

My main research area is the use of cognitive questioning with second language students.
