Areas of Interest
My main areas of interest are Bilingualism, Language Testing, Vocabulary and the prediction of study success of international students. I am currently involved in two projects at Flinders University/ Australia, where we develop language tests that can be used to predict the study success of international trainees at a Nursing School in Australia. This is linked to a project that I am carrying out with Yixin Wang on the prediction of study success of Chinese student at universities in the UK. Together with Zehra Ongun I am carrying out a project on the development of bilingual children in the UK and the relation of their vocabulary sizes in both languages and their general cognitive abilities.
