Research Overview

My interests focus on bilingualism and second-language acquisition. In particular, I’m interested in second-language learners and their experiences learning in both formal and informal contexts. This can include learner attitudes and perceptions, but also can include psycholinguistic studies of learner biases and transfer. This stems from my experiences in both quantitative and qualitative research, and I try to perform mixed-methods research whenever possible.
