Introduction (from LinkedIn):
There is nothing better than seeing how international experiences change the lives of my students. I launched and managed an international exchange programme between colleges in the UK and Japan. Moreover, I prepare students for studying abroad through increasing their confidence to communicate and discussing intercultural issues with them. At Kansai University, I have the pleasure of being a member of the Study Abroad Committee in the Faculty of Foreign Language Studies, so I can help students to achieve their dreams overseas.
My Ph.D. research explored inter-cultural issues that arose following the introduction of a communicative curriculum, which required new approaches in teaching and learning English. For my present research, I have been awarded a "Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research" (Kakenhi) to study factors that influence Japanese students' capacity to speak English.

For many years, my interest has been in the role of ELF in higher education, the subject of both my 2014 monograph, English as Lingua Franca in the International University, and the volume I recently co-edited with Anna Mauranen (now in press) on the findings of our project, 'Linguistic Diversity on the EMI Campus'.
