During my career, I studied first at Nottingham Trent University (U.K.) (Law), then University of Technology, Sydney (Australia) (MA: English Language Teaching), and at the University of Sheffield (U.K.) (PhD: Sociolinguistics).
I have worked in several institutions including Ritsumeikan APU, Fukuoka University, Seinan Gakuin University, and now in the Faculty of Languages and Cultures at Kyushu University.
My research focuses on the internationalization of Japanese higher education. I am also involved in projects to create commercial apps for learning English grammar, and a project to develop translation software. I have presented my research at conferences in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Cambodia, Dubai, and Australia.
My lectures give students the chance to improve their confidence in using English, the language increasingly being used as the global lingua franca. A higher confidence to receive and produce works in English is an important skill in the modern, globalized marketplace. Students in my classes should recognize that the more they put into the class, the more they receive. I will always do my best to maximise their potential gains from my courses.
