■ Message
I hope that you enjoy studying at APU as much as I enjoy teaching here, and that you take full advantage of APU's unique learning environment. 
■ Current research
My research concerns the teaching of English as a global language, and the ways in which it can be supported by teaching materials. This includes examining students' exposure to different varieties of English, as well as looking at how learners' awareness of English's nature as a global language can be raised.
