Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

At the moment I am co-supervising one PhD student (DL), together with Dr Ruth Page; Rachel Manley, “Using the board game Forbidden Island to analyse students’ improvement on English Language”.

If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.

Personal profile


Before I joined the Department of English Language and Linguistics I worked at the University of Sunderland as subject leader TESOL in their undergraduate programme and as senior lecturer  in their MA TESOL programme.

Research interests

In my PhD study I explored the question of first language attrition, in particular if your environment language is faster and more easily accessible than the native language after a speaker has been living in these environments for a lengthy period of time. I am interested in investigating psycholinguistic processes and their effects on learning (and teaching).
