Dr Sebastian Lesniewski
Senior Lecturer: Foundation
Academic Lead for Research
I have been working in language education since 2002. Before joining Bloomsbury Institute in 2021, I spent several years teaching Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods, Critical Thinking, Research Proposal Development, and English for Academic Purposes to university foundation year students at the pre-undergraduate, pre-Master’s and pre-PhD levels. I also taught on pre-sessional programmes at the University of Essex, King’s College London and the University of Sheffield.
My interests include corpus linguistics, natural language processing, spoken performance, and the intricacies of how human memory works (in particular the biological processes of it). I’m an avid reader: apart from my favourite writers George Orwell and Witold Gombrowicz, I love reading about history, sociology of religion, and psychology. I’m interested in all kinds of art – especially music and drama. I also continuously strive to enhance my IT skills and my understanding of statistical research.
