Michelle Symonds obtained her PhD from the University of York in 1995. With over 30 years of international research and publication experience, she has collaborated extensively with a number of international research groups, notably in Spain, and has worked as a lecturer, visiting speaker, and academic consultant for Oxford Risk (University of Oxford). Her research interests span from basic learning theory and its application to societal challenges to a more recent focus on academic anxiety and success in international students. Her research has been funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Wellcome Trust, and various funding agencies in Spain. She continues to serve as an ad hoc reviewer for a range of high-impact academic journals and grant-awarding bodies. In addition to her research career, Dr. Symonds is also a qualified English language teacher who has developed and delivered diverse academic English courses (writing and speaking) to graduate students and teaching professionals across a range of university settings in the UK and Spain (including the University of Lincoln, Granada, Bilbao, and San Sebastian).
