Career Highlights

Teaching Interests

I have a PGCert Teaching in Higher Education and a CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualification.

I teach a range of modules in the areas of Spanish language, translation, and interpreting at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

I support teaching by supervising undergraduate dissertations and projects, and postgraduate dissertations and theses. I am interested in supervising projects in applied linguistics, language learning, translation, and interpreting, particularly if they have a multidisciplinary perspective.
