About Alexia

Alexia joined Team Defence Information in 2019, as an assistant Simplified Technical English (STE) tutor working alongside Maria MacDonald.

First and foremost a linguist, Alexia is passionate about languages, and the use of language in different contexts - including industrial, commercial and technical ones where STE is an international lingua franca.

Alongside her role at Team Defence Information, Alexia works at the University of Bristol, supporting academics to engage with and influence policy. As part of this role, she delivers training to academics on topics such as how to communicate with non-academic stakeholders and how to write for a policy audience. Courses are attended by academics at all stages of their careers (post-docs to Professors), and from a broad range of disciplines, from engineering to the arts.

Prior to this, Alexia spent five years at Research Councils UK (now UKRI).

Outside of work, Alexia enjoys outdoor pursuits, and is kept busy raising a young family!
