Conversation Analysis, Applied Linguistics, Second Language Acquisition and Use
My research uses Conversation Analysis to focus on the resources that language learners use to achieve and solve problems related to mutual understanding. I am particularly interested in how these phenomena relate to language learning motivation, language use and development in non-educational settings, task accomplishment and design, and language assessment.
I have publications in Language Learning, TESOL Quarterly, and Applied Pragmatics, as well as a number of book chapters. I am currently working on an edited volume and a special issue, both relating to Language Assessment.
