My current research interests lie in the area of the internationalisation of Higher Education and the experience of students and academics in this internationalised climate.  My background as a graduate in modern foreign languages and a lengthy period of employment as a tutor to international students has undoubtedly fuelled my interest in this area and influenced my approach to my research.

My PhD focuses on the experiences of international post doctoral students in tourism and their supervisors. It focuses on the role of language and power in the PhD experience and, through a critical language studies approach, the work also examines the contribution of PhDs to knowledge creation in tourism
