Phone:

Expertise:

I am interested in the sociolinguistics of globalization - primarily the phenomenon of adult language learning and its attendant power and identity issues.   The uses and development of English repertoires in an increasingly mobile, multilingual and digital age fascinate me.   Within globalization, I am especially interested in helping international organizations better equip their employees to acquire the language skills necessary to carry out their goals.  This includes applying second language acquisition theory to language learning in field-based and non-classroom settings.   I have also researched language repertoires and translanguaging in digital social media.
