Research

research overview

  • I operate as a social scientist with degrees in communicative disorders and linguistics and experience in speech-language pathology and applied linguistics with interests in language as social action, aphasia, literacy, second language acquisition, language-learning, and language use. Although I have conducted a number of experimental studies, my main interests lie in qualitative research methodologies and the extent to which they can inform language learning and language usage in clinical, educational, and second language contexts.
