I am an Assistant Professor in a School of Social Sciences. My background is diverse, ranging from Social Anthropology and Scottish Studies to EAP (English for Academic Purposes), my main professional role. I am an early researcher and have published a small number of papers and a book chapter on the (inter)cultural and affective aspects of teaching and learning and also on aspects of EAP (the value of embedding Academic skills provision in degree courses). My current research involves diversity and bullying in HE.
