I am particularly interested in translation, at present I am
involved in the development of the future MA Applied Linguistics:
Translation programme. I am an associate member of the Institute of
Interpreting and Translation and regularly attend workshops and
training sessions. At present I am coordinator of the CDP
activities for the Japanese Network of the ITI.
I am a member of BATJ (British Association for Teaching
Japanese) and attend Japanese teaching workshops at the Japan
Foundation in London.
My personal areas of interest are the development of
communicative teaching materials and the so-called J-GAP – bridging
the gap between secondary and higher education with particular
reference to Japanese language studies.
I run the York Japan Society as well as Kaminari Taiko Drumming
- North Yorkshire's only Japanese drumming group.
