As an applied linguist, I use theoretical knowledge to tackle real-world problems involving language learning and language use. My research interests include language acquisition through peer-peer dialogue, corpus-based investigations of learner language, critical discourse analysis of media language, and public bilingual education for young learners. At HWS, I developed a certificate program which provides an entry-level credential in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), and I oversee the department's K-12 certification program in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) for New York public schools. My research articles have appeared in Corpora, Across the Disciplines, and Advances in Autism; I recently co-authored a research monograph for Palgrave Macmillan; and I have given presentations at national and international applied linguistics conferences such as AAAL (American Association for Applied Linguisitics) and ICAME (International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English).
