External Activities

I have engaged in numerous associations over the course of my career.  I am the co-founder and the co-chair of the Corpus Linguistics in Scotland (CLiS) Network, and the Seminars Coordinator of the British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL).  I am a member of main associations in my teaching/research areas such as the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP), International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL), and TESOL International Association.

I have undertaken a number of external examining positions.  These included evaluating course proposals (e.g. York St John University) and courses (e.g. University of Glasgow and Trinity College Dublin).  I have also externally examined Master’s dissertations (e.g. Federal University of Minas Gerais and São Paulo State University) and doctoral theses (e.g. De Monfort University and Queen’s University Belfast).
