I am an applied linguist and a linguistic anthropologist. My research examines the social and cultural patterning of learning and language development in communities whose members use multiple languages and participate in multiple learning traditions.
Within the Department of Teaching and Learning, I am a core faculty member of two areas of study: Language, Education, & Society (LES) and Foreign, Second & Multilingual Language Education (FSMLE).
I am also affiliated with the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures and four graduate interdisciplinary specializations: Language Sciences, Literacy Studies, Second Language Studies, and Applied Developmental Science.
I teach courses on language socialization, second language acquisition, linguistic diversity in education, and informal language science outreach.
