Personal profile

Biography

Peter Roger is the Director of Programs in Applied Linguistics at Macquarie University.  A medical graduate from the University of Sydney, he received his PhD from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Sydney in 2003. Drawing upon his dual backgrounds in medicine and linguistics, his research interests lie in the broad area of health communication, with a particular focus on topics relating to linguistic diversity.  Peter also has a research and PhD supervision profile in the area of second language acquisition, where his specific interests concern the links between language learning, motivation and identity, particularly as these issues relate to today’s rapidly globalising world.  His fields of research endeavour are united by the common themes of linguistic diversity and social inclusion.

Peter teaches a course unit on second language acqusition as part of the Master of Applied Linguistics and TESOL program.  He also teaches the undergraduate unit "Language, Globalisation and World Englishes", and gives guest lectures in the areas of bilingual aphasia and interpreter-mediated healthcare encounters.  He is co-author (with Sally Candlin) of Communication and Professional Relationships in Healthcare Practice (Equinox, 2013).
