Carl is a professor in the Department of Foreign Languages & Cultures at the University of La Sabana in Chía, Colombia, South America, where he principally teaches and tutors for the Master's programme in English Language Teaching – Autonomous Learning Environments. In this context, he works particularly on content and language integrated learning (CLIL) and "World Englishes", as well as fostering research and academic writing skills.
He also serves on the editorial board of the Latin American Journal of Content and Language Integrated Learning (LACLIL), a peer-reviewed online periodical for teachers, researchers, and educational administrators who are interested in researching, implementing or improving content-based language learning approaches, techniques, and policies.
Carl's backgrounds and interests cover a wide range of philologically related topics, running from folklore and mythology through history and archaeology. He holds an A.B. in Folklore & Mythology from Harvard College and a Ph.D. from the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic (Faculty of English) at the University of Cambridge, and he maintains research interests in Old English and Old Norse (both "lang" and "lit"), particularly in the area of the development of heroic legend. He has a stalled project to create an electronic edition of the Vocabularium Cornicum and also dabbles in Arthuriana. Since coming to Colombia, he has expanded also expanded from an original focus on Indo-European contexts to those of his new home, particularly the Chibchan languages and cultures (extinct Muisca, as well as the Arhuacan languages of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta), as well as the Wayuunaiki language (Maipurean) of the Guajira penninsula and its closest relatives (e.g. extinct Taíno).
Outside of academia, Carl has worked as a technical writer and editor in the high technology industry, and founded/ran the Cambridge Writers of Imaginative Literature (CWIL) creative writing workshop in Cambridge, England.
