I joined Massey University in 2006. Prior to becoming Senior Lecturer in Linguistics/Applied Linguistics I was programme coordinator for German. From 2011 to mid-2016 I worked in the role of Director, Teaching and Learning for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. My language-teaching background also includes TESOL and TESOL training at a private tertiary provider as well as community language initiatives for migrants. My research interest is in the areas of Applied Linguistics and Sociolinguistics, with a current focus on discursive construction of identity and community in translingual online environments.
