My interests involve issues in second language acquisition (SLA) which affect teaching practice. This includes curriculum design, effective use of technology, structured input and processing instruction as alternatives to traditional approaches to grammar instruction, and evaluating student work. I am also interested in foreign language teacher education and the professional development of language instructors.
