BIOGRAPHY


I am a Professor at the Department of English Language, Faculty of Languages and Linguistics, University of Malaya (UM). My main areas of research interest are the segmental and prosodic features of spoken Malaysian English, and the revitalisation of Malacca Portuguese Creole or Cristang. My initial work on the Creole was funded by, and has been archived in the Endangered Languages Archive (http://elar.soas.ac.uk/deposit/0123). I am currently the Dean of the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics. I was the Deputy Dean for Postgraduate Studies of the Faculty from August 2014, and previously headed the University's Centre for Industrial Training and Relations, which later expanded to become the Centre for Community and Industry Relations.
