Profile

I am interested in how adults learn an additional language and exactly what it is that they need to know in order to communicate successfully. This has led me to investigate different aspects of spoken communication, in particular interpersonal pragmatics and pronunciation, from a range of perspectives in an effort to understand what it is that learners need to learn, and therefore what it is that teachers should be teaching. Recent projects have focussed on the communicative needs of internationally trained doctors preparing to practice in Australia. As an applied linguist, I am committed to research projects that have implications for learning and teaching practice.

I also have a strong interest in international education and am currently Associate Dean International for the faculty.
