Personal profile


PhD (Education), MSc (TESOL), MBA, BA (Hons) TESL

I am Lecturer in Intercultural Education at the Manchester Institute of Education. My research expertise focuses broadly on intercultural education and creative methods for educational research. I am particularly interested in developing critical understandings of students and their intercultural experience in higher education.

I primarily teach on the MA International Education where I lead the EDUC70621 course unit Intercultural Communication in Education. I am also the Programme Director for the MA International Education. 

Main Research interests

Intercultural Education:

  • Critical understandings of students and student experiences 
  • Student belonging and inclusion 
  • Creative approaches with ('international') students
  • Intercultural ethics, epistemic justice, and epistemological plurality 
  • Intercultural mindfulness

Creative Methods:

  • Imagination methodology
  • visual arts methods: e.g. 'blind'-portrait, photography, painting, collage, art-gallery visiting

Current PhD(/Mphil) Supervision:

  • Agentic beings in waiting: international students’ narratives of studying abroad experience as future-making event, Xian Zhao
  • Understanding Chinese international students’ interculturality through their narrated sojourn experiences in the UK, Jing Wang
  • Exploring the roles of generosity in students’ intercultural experiences at a UK university, Fangfang Hong 


Intercultural Education

I lead a PGT course unit EDUC70621 Intercultural Communication in Education, which explores critical intercultural approaches to 'international' education and education 'internationalisation'.

I also design and deliver a training series on 'Creative Approaches to International Students' (CAIS) for the Institute of Teaching and Learning (ITL) at the university. The training series provides conceptual and practical opportunities for staff to reflect towards more inclusive understandings and approaches to teaching, support, and partnering with international students. 

Creative methods

I teach/contribute sessions on creative methods to PGT and PGR students in research methods units and training. 

My scholarship of creative methods is informed by the ethics of epistemic justices, and epistemological diversity and inclusion in knowledge production.
