Ever since the completion on his MA dissertation that examined EAP teaching in Taiwan, Greg has been focusing on the line of ESP or EAP from the perspectives of both a practitioner and a researcher. He was a Lecturer of English, certified by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan, for almost a decade, mainly associated with undergraduate students in English writing/speaking and TESOL-related courses.
