My background is in Applied Linguistics and I have taught Academic English at both the University of Edinburgh (1999-1992) and the University of Adelaide (1993-present). My major roles in the School of Education are to enable master's student academic development through teaching into research processes and communication courses. In addition, I coordinated and taught in the Introductory Academic Program (IAP) for AusAID international students from 2006-2016. I also lectured in the Integrated Bridging Program (IBP) for postgraduate research students from its inception in 1994 until 2015.
I am a PhD researcher in the final stages of submission in the School of Education. My thesis topic is: "From Southern Sudan to Adelaide: Learning Journeys of Refugee Secondary Students". It aims to investigate the prior learning experiences and perspectives of nineteen South Sudanese refugee secondary students and two teachers. In open-ended interviews, they talked about learning in their homeland, compared to their mainstream schooling experiences in Adelaide.
