I am a PhD student in Applied Linguistics and a visiting lecturer in Academic Writing at the University of Greenwich. I specialise in Second Language Processing and the role of Individual Differences in Second Language Acquisition. I am still finding my feet in the world of academia and aspiring to be an ambassador for young women in academic research.
My interests extend to teaching foreign languages and language pedagogy. As a CELTA trained teacher, I am interested in curriculum development and I am currently working on material development in ELT classrooms (and aspiring to the DELTA in the near future).
You can find an up-to-date version of my CV and research on this blog. My research expands beyond my PhD as I’m interested in HE pedagogies and teaching theories. I often include questions for students and teachers on their experiences, perceptions and ideas regarding this. Please have a look and leave your thoughts. I also include some of my teaching materials, both from Higher Education and ELT (to be updated).
However, this blog is also a space to share my thoughts, experiences and interests in my research, travels, London life and more. I consider Italy as my second home. I spent 5 summers there and have a passion for the language, the culture and the people. If you have ever stood in a piazza, at 10pm, accompanied by the music of chinking coffee cups, Prosecco filled glasses, the Italian language, surrounded by the warmth of the Italian air and the delicious scent of food, then you’ll know why.
I welcome comments, ideas and enquires about my research, blog and teaching. Please feel free to get in touch on here or via social media.
