Personal profile

Biography

I am a Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes at Research and Enterprise. I completed both my MA in Language Studies and doctorate in Linguistics at Lancaster University. I focused my PhD research on cognitive text analysis. Prior to that I also completed a postgraduate course at Kiev University, Ukraine (equivalent to PhD) on English syntax. I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching English for Academic Purposes from Nottingham University (2011) and Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (University of Huddersfield). I have taught English to non-English speakers for over 20 years. I also taught Italian and Russian languages. I joined the University of Huddersfield in 2009, first working at pre-sessional courses at the International Study Centre and in 2011 joining Research and Enterprise to teach English for academic purposes to international research students. Prior to that I taught translation studies at the City University of London, taught pre-sessional English courses at Nottingham University and worked as an assistant professor at Kiev National University, Ukraine, teaching English, linguistics and translation studies. I also worked as a freelance interpreter and translator in the public service sector. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of BALEAP – the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purpose.

Research Expertise and Interests

I am interested in many linguistic disciplines, including text and discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, translation studies, cross-cultural communication. At present my main area of interest is corpus-based academic English teaching and corpus discourse research.

I have published a paper  Intertextuality as cognitive modelling in the journal English Text Construction (2016). I have recently published a chapter entitled ‘Discourses of conflict: Cross-linguistic corpus-assisted comparative discourse analysis of Russian and Ukrainian parliamentary debates of 2014‘, in a collection of papers Language of Conflict: Discourses of the Ukrainian Crisis, Knoblock (ed), Bloomsbury 2020 and a resource book for teachers and academic writers Academic Writing with Corpora (Routledge, 2020).

Apart from my interest in corpus linguistics, I have always been interested in issues in women studies and co-authored a paper ‘Rethinking stories of transnational mothering in the context of international study’ in Women’s Studies International Forum (2018).
