Biography

I am currently a doctoral candidate working on a project exploring Family Language Policy and Child Language Brokering in the Scottish context. See my PhD student profile.

In 2018, I received Early Career Researcher funding through the AHRC-OWRI Creative Multilingualism project. This ongoing project All the World is Our Stage: primary pupils never lost in translanguaging continues to find success under its own momentum — see Research Interests and Publications sections for further information.

In parallel to my research interests, I have a lifelong passion for teaching with teaching experience spanning over two decades. Since 2015, I have also been delivering GTCS-accredited professional teacher trainer courses — see Teaching section for further information.

Before beginning my research career, in 2006 I started a successful Translation and Interpreting business, and maintain my links and involvement with the languages industry in Scotland and the wider UK. With the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) I was elected to Council, acted as the Secretary of its Scottish Society and coordinated the HE Language Partnership Scheme in Scotland, facilitating a professional partnership between the five main T&I studies providers in Scotland – including our own SMLC – and CIOL.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a Chartered Linguist, and fully registered with the GTCS for secondary Spanish, additionally holding provisional registration for ESOL — see Additional Information section for further information.

Research interests

My current research interests lie in translation and interpreting studies, sociolinguistics, language learning and teaching and bilingual studies with a special focus on:

  • child language brokering
  • language ideologies
  • language policy and planning
  • multilingualism
  • translanguaging
  • 1+2 approach to language learning
  • ethics of public services interpreting
  • scholarship of learning & teaching
  • educational research

I am a Multilingual Advisory Board Member for Target Online.

Current Research Projects

Principal Investigator, All the World is Our Stage, 2018–present

This OWRI-funded project celebrates linguistic diversity and reflects on the multilingual, multicultural and superdiverse society represented in Glasgow today. This multilingual performance supports the teaching and learning journey of primary schooling in non-affluent areas of the city. Acknowledging that embedding every community language in the curriculum is not feasible, we specifically focus on creating contexts where the languages spoken at home enjoy the same status as those taught at school.

The public engagement activity of this project ranges from extraordinary school and local authority engagement, to taking the multilingual performance ‘All the World is Our Stage: primary pupils never lost in translanguaging’ to the Scottish Parliament. During lockdown, the project received additional funding and a series of mini webinars has been produced and published fostering knowledge exchange and contributing to the legacy of Creative Multilingualism.

See Publications for other outputs.

Doctoral Project

Within my PhD, I investigate the language ideologies and linguistic practices of Spanish speaking families in contemporary Scotland, using a critical ethnographic sociolinguistic approach.
