About

I'm a professor in the Department of Foreign Languages & Cultures at the University of the Sabana in Chía, Colombia, South America, where I principally teach and tutor for the Master's programme in English Language Teaching – Autonomous Learning Environments. In this context, I am particularly interested in theories of language acquisition, content and language integrated learning (CLIL), and "World Englishes", as well as fostering research and academic writing skills. I also serve on the editorial board of the Latin American Journal of Content and Language Integrated Learning (LACLIL), a peer-reviewed online periodical for teachers, researchers, and educational administrators who are interested in researching, implementing or improving content-based language learning approaches, techniques, and policies. My background and interests cover a wide range of philologically related topics, running from folklore and mythology through history and archaeology. I maintain research interests in Old English and Old Norse (both "lang" and "lit"), particularly in the area of the development of heroic legend. Since coming to Colombia, I have also expanded from an original focus on Indo-European contexts to those of my new home, particularly the Chibchan languages and cultures (extinct Muisca, as well as the Arhuacan languages of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta), as well as the Wayuunaiki language (Maipurean) of the Guajira penninsula and its closest relatives. Outside of academia, I have worked as a technical writer and editor in the high technology industry, and founded/ran the Cambridge Writers of Imaginative Literature (CWIL) creative writing workshop in Cambridge, England.
