My primary research interests include language testing for migration purposes and for the purpose of university admission. In my research I focus on the impact of language (testing) policies and on the use and misuse of language tests. I have been a visiting scholar at Georgetown University and the University of Melbourne.
Prior to starting an academic career I worked as a language tutor and as a language policy officer. Since the connection between research, practice and policy remains very important to me, my research engages with real-world problems. I offer research-based language policy recommendations and consultancy to local, national and supranational organizations.
Currently, I am mainly working on the impact of language tests in migration and integration policies on migrants who have had little or no access to formal education.
