I am currently a PhD candidate in Web Science at the Web Science Institute and part of the Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Southampton. I'm researching e-learning, with particular reference to Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and am part of the MOOC Observatory research group at the university. I also work as an online tutor/mentor and materials developer on the Southampton/British Council Understanding Language and Web Science MOOCs. I have previously worked as a teacher and lecturer in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and continue to work on the University of Southampton online pre-sessional course for international students. I also helped plan, research and develop the Southampton/British Council online MA in ELT

My PhD supervisors are Dr Su White (Electronics and Computer Science) and Julie Watson (Principle Teaching Fellow in eLearning, Humanities).
