I am a PhD candidate in the Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Nottingham.  Click here for a synopsis of my PhD activities.

Before beginning my PhD I spent ten years teaching English as a foreign language in the UK, the Czech Republic, South Korea, and Spain.  During this time I gained an MA in Applied Linguistics.  Previously, I spent my undergraduate years at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and gained a BMus(hons) in violin performance.
