Biography

I completed my BA Hons in French (first class), MA Linguistics and PhD in French at Newcastle University. My doctoral research focused on sociolinguistic variation in the phonology of metropolitan French. I was appointed Lecturer in French at Exeter in 2001, and Senior Lecturer in 2006. Since June 2010 I have acted as Programme Director in French. I am an external examiner on BA French and Modern Languages programmes at Newcastle, having previously served at Queen's University, Belfast (2008-2012), and am a member of the advisory editorial board of the Journal of French Language Studies.
