Profile

I am currently a postgraduate researcher at Leeds University, my work revolves around the narratives of mobility and interculturality. I am keen on exploring what impacts mobility/eperiences abroad can have on individuals' perceptions of themselves and others. I intend to carry out my work following a qualitative research approach through interviews, focus groups, and observation. Prior to the start of my PhD degree, I was enrolled in a PhD pre-sessional program at Canterbury Christ Church University where I had the chance to work on my language and research skills. This program helped me to acquire further knowledge about Intercultural Studies as it allowed me to meet renowned specialists in the field. I received my MA and BA degrees from 8 Mai 1945 University in Algeria. Both degrees covered subjects in Linguistics, Literature and Civilization, and were taught in English. My MA lasted two years and included both taught modules and a dissertation. My MA dissertation tackled the impact of Technology-Based Learning on EFL Learners' Autonomy. It involved interviewing both students and teachers at a specific university department, along with an experimental design which lasted for four months approximately. 

I currently work with Educational Engagement where I organize and deliver workshops in different UK schools and colleges. I also work as the PG Communications Intern at the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies, in addition to being a module assistant in Intercultural Studies at UoL.
