Since completing my PhD (funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council) in 1999, I have lectured at several UK universities. At present, my teaching is mostly in English Language and Linguistics, and my research and supervision mostly in the field of (Higher) Education. At the University of Manchester, I was the School of Education's Director of Undergraduate Studies between 2007 and 2010 and I am currently an academic lead for the Humanities New Academics Programme. I have acted as an External Examiner for many postgraduate theses and an External Advisor for several UK degree programmes, at both undergraduate and Masters level.
I am a founder-member of the Comparative Lexical Relations Group (http://www.f.waseda.jp/vicky/complexica/index.html) and I regularly deliver papers at major international conferences. In 2010, I gave a keynote address for the Institut für Deutsche Sprache in Mannheim, Germany. I have also given invited talks or presented conference papers in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), Verona and Bertinoro (Italy), Freiburg (Germany) and San Francisco (USA).
