Teaching experience

Utrecht University
I’ve been a member of the English department at Utrecht since 2011 (after previous stints as an adjunct lecturer, see above), teaching on a range of courses in linguistics. I teach courses in phonetics, phonology and sociolinguistics. I also supervise BA and MA theses on these topics. I am currently programme coordinator of the BA degree in English Language and Culture.


University of Leiden
I taught at the Leiden English department for two-and-a-half (non-consecutive) years between 2003 and 2010 on almost all linguistics courses in the BA programme.


Hogeschool Utrecht (HU University of Applied Sciences)
I taught at the HU for three years (2007-2010), on courses in linguistics, English language proficiency and teaching methodology at UG and PG level.
