Merin Nielsen

Lecturer, Common Units

Until this millennium, I mainly worked in the Australian public service, but then I returned to tertiary study, followed by teaching work. This included teaching English as a Second Language at a private college in Brisbane; then academic content at University of Queensland; and now in the Common Units at Charles Darwin University.
