Research interests

My interest lies in the reciprocal relationship between theory and practice, where insights from research inform educational practice and practical experiences enrich theoretical understanding. Hence, because of this interest, I tend to explore trends in ELT (e.g., Blended Learning, Integration of Generative AI). I also found myself linking my findings to the theory of Adult Learning (Andragogy) because of my context in higher education which I think is also becoming an area of interest.
