I am a Senior Lecturer in TESOL at The University of Salford in the UK where I work with BA, MA and PhD students.
I have an extensive publication record and I am a regular presenter at international conferences usually as a keynote or plenary speaker. I have extensive experience in the field and, in addition to the UK, I have lived and worked in Sudan, Kuwait and Thailand. I have been fortunate enough to deliver numerous presentations, consultancies, guest lectures and workshops in many parts of the world including Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, USA, UAE and Vietnam. I also undertake external validation and examining activities and I have undertaken commissions from Routledge and Oxford University Press to review works prior to publication. Contact me if you would like to invite me to speak at a conference or to get involved in other activities relevant activities. My areas of expertise include technology, methodology, syllabus design, teaching materials, research methods and English for Academic Purposes (EAP). In addition to maintaining and funding this website I am an editorial board reader for the The Journal of Asia TEFL and a reader for TESL-EJ, TESOL Journal and CALL-EJ.
