ROLE : GE Resources Coordinator
INSTITUTION : Kasetsart University

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at Kasetsart University, Thailand. I have taught English as a foreign language for 12 years in Thailand (both face-to-face and blended learning with online mode), created and developed new modules and new teaching materials in Applied Linguistics (i.e. Englishes around the World, Sociolinguistics, English Varieties and Cultures of English Native Speakers). I took part in the curriculum review for BA (English), MA (English for Specific Purposes) and worked in a team to develop an international PhD curriculum (English for International Communication). My research can be divided into 3 main areas: Blended Learning and Learner Autonomy, English Language Education and World Englishes. I was the country coordinator and mentor for two Researcher Links workshops (one of which concerns English as a Lingua in Southeast Asia) funded by the Newton Fund. I’m currently working on two research publications on internationalisation of Higher Education funded by the British Academy under the scheme of Newton Advanced Fellowship.
