I am a professor in the Department of Education‘s Applied Linguistics Program at Concordia University in Montréal. My research focuses on cognitive aspects of second language processing, second language speech learning, sociolinguistic aspects of second language acquisition, and the teaching of second language pronunciation. I have served as Journal Editor of Language Learning (2015-2019, 2022-2023).
Applied linguistics lab
The lab’s recent projects make use of eye-tracking, audio- and video-recording, and galvanic skin response sensors to investigate various verbal and nonverbal features of interaction involving university-level speakers of English as a second language.
All lab members work on multiple research projects relevant to their research interests and have opportunities to share their research findings through conference presentations and peer-reviewed publications.
