Personal information

I work as an assistant professor of English linguistics within the Department of Language, Literature & Communication. My research interests are language variation and change - specifically English (historical) syntax - and the interaction between information and syntax. 


I teach courses within our own department for students of CIW and L&S. In addition, I teach and/or coordinate a range of courses on academic writing for students across the university. This includes the Minor in English and activities for the Academic Language Programme of the Faculty of Humanities.I am also involved in the GMAT preparation course offered by the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration.
