Current research interests
As the number of people with access to computers and smartphones increase, there have been a plethora of applications, websites, and other e-learning activities created to improve students’ English. I’ve been researching how technology can be used to improve speaking fluency, speaking complexity, pronunciation, and decrease speaking anxiety. Besides a technology-focus, I’m also interested in researching how second language acquisition is aided by peer-to-peer interactions, such as role plays, group discussions, and short presentations. I’m a proponent of the Output Hypothesis and Interactionist Theory. Lastly, I’m dedicated to helping teachers by creating rubrics to help with textbook selection based on Nation’s Four Strands Theory and have also volunteered teaching teachers in Vietnam, Cambodia, and China.
