Prior to Massey, I was Senior Curriculum Officer developing K-10 Languages curriculum in the Department of Education and Training, Queensland, Australia. 

I currently hold a position as Adjunct Lecturer and Research Fellow in the School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia.

My research interests lie in the areas of Applied Linguistics and Language Education, in particular with emphasis of multilingual/bilingual education, language-in-education policy, technology-enhanced language learning and teaching, intercultural language learning, and English as an international language.
