Research and Teaching Interests:

As an applied linguist, my primary research examines developmental processes informing L2 writing and draws from dynamic systems theory and usage-based theories of language development. I also explore the interface between emergentism and Vygotysky's sociocultural theory, and the utility of literary texts for developing L2 proficiency. In the classroom, I engage students with recent studies on writing and literacy development and encourage students to reflect upon and apply various educational theories to their own developing academic literacies.
