Dr Banchakarn Sameephet, a Lecturer in Applied Linguistics at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Khon Kaen University, Thailand. I was awarded a PhD in applied linguistics from the University of Waikato, New Zealand. My PhD thesis entitled On the fluidity of languages: A way out of the dilemma in English medium instruction classrooms in Thailand. To download this e-thesis, please visit Research Commons (https://researchcommons.waikato.ac.nz/handle/10289/13498). I am also a teacher trainer, working closely with secondary school teachers in a regional area of Thailand to provide content, pedagogical, and technological knowledge to enhance their English language teaching skills. Further, I run practical workshops on EMI for teaching staff in higher education settings. My research areas and interests are EMI, language policy, translanguaging, multilingualism, and teacher cognition and practice. Currently, I am interested in observing phenomena of EMI in multilingual university settings in Asia and beyond from top-down to bottom-up angles through lenses of the ROADMAPPING Framework, teacher cognition and practices, language ideologies and practices (i. e., translanguaging and code-switching).
