  • Research Fellow
  • IOE - Culture, Communication & Media
  • UCL Institute of Education

In 2017 I completed the MA in Applied Linguistics from UCL’s IOE, with an MA thesis on child language brokering in a supplementary education setting. I am now currently studying a PhD on Social Network Analysis and Language Maintenance in the Somali community in London. 

Research Summary

My research interests are centred around heritage language maintenance, language education and family language policy. I worked for 2 years on an ESRC funded collaborative research project between the University of Bath, Birkbeck University and UCL on family language policy in three communities in London, where I gained a keen interest in heritage language maintenance in minority communities.  

Teaching Summary

Since 2020, I have worked as a contributing lecturer on the Bilingualism and Multilingualism module for the MA in Applied Linguistics at UCL, as well as the module tutor for the Multimodal Communications module.
