Biography

Cassi is an Applied Linguist with a particular interest in social semiotics and Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL). Her research generally focusses on academic literacy and writing for research purposes (e.g., ERPP). After compiling the Chinese Learner Longitudinal Corpus (CLLC; 2009-2013), she went on to develop the Macquarie Longitudinal Learner Corpus (MQLLC; 2014-2018). Findings from these projects have informed several publications on the deployment and development of grammatical metaphor, a key linguistic resource necessary for achieving the diverse demands of academic discourse. 

Cassi's more recent research projects have explored higher degree research candidates' experiences preparing their doctoral theses and specifically, the unique challenges associated with preparing a thesis-by-publication. Her current project, Benchmarking Success, revisits undergraduate student writing, examining the benchmarks disciplinary experts employ when assessing texts as more or less successful.

Research student supervision

Cassi currently supervises PhD students investigating Ideational Grammatical Metaphor in Japanese EFL learner writing; English as the Medium of Instruction in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon; Japanese scientists' experiences with English for Research Publication Purposes (ERPP); Arabic as a resource for teaching English as an Additional Language (EAL); the shaping of doctoral students' writing identity when co-authoring with supervisors; and, Learner Autonomy in Vietnamese undergraduate student writing.

Available for supervision in late 2021.
