Biography
I lived and worked in Morocco, Spain and China on British Council English Language Teaching programmes. For the last twenty years my work has centred on English for Academic Purposes, first at parts of London University and then at Richmond. At Richmond I teach in the Academic Literacies Programme, but also teach courses in the Communications degree. I also led two International Field Study Projects, to Morocco and China which involved students conducting primary research in the field with a schedule of lectures and guided visits.
