He then furthered his education at Lancaster University, UK, where he obtained his Master of Research (MRes) and PhD, both in Applied Linguistics. He has published on a wide range of topics including the assessment of reflection and independent learning, English as a lingua franca, English learning experiences, genres, and ESP in key journals such as Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, Higher Education, Journal of English for Academic Purposes, System and Oxford Review of Education. His other research interests include written discourse analysis, identities and roles in writing, social learning theory (particularly Community of Practice) and Systemic Functional Linguistics.
