Work and Research

My current research involves exploration of English second language databases in comparison to other academic databases of experts’ writers in English, using software (corpus linguistics), and how this can be used as a basis for academic writing instruction in tertiary education. My teaching and mentorship activities centre on junior scientists in the humanities, who struggle with international publications and project writing at various levels. We run an International Network of Academic Writing Excellence involving colleagues and students from universities in five African countries (Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, and Tanzania) and Germany, in which we mediate their texts, provide information on conferences and publication outlets at national and international level.
