I am seconded out of Cardiff University at the moment. I shall return to the School of Welsh in July 2018.

I have been a Lecturer at the School of Welsh since September 2012. My main research and teaching interests are language planning, for Welsh and other languages. I work on language technology, software localisation, translation software, language policy and linguistic behaviour change.
