Overview

I received education in English literature, applied linguistics and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I consider TESOL my home. My research has focused on the policy and practice of TESOL education in Asia. I am particularly interested in the role of English in individual mobility and social development. This interest has led me to examine English as a medium of instruction (EMI) policy and practice and its academic and social outcomes. I use qualitative, quantitative and textual data. My work is underpinned by critical perspectives, my multidisciplinary backgrounds and my life experiences as a confused transnational.
