Research Interests

I work in the area of critical applied linguistics. My research tends to examine issues of power, identity and language in education. My previous research projects have explored language variation in elementary schools; English-only ideology in higher education; language planning and policy in higher education and the development of language beliefs in pre-service teachers. I’m currently involved in collaborative research projects in the area of language reclamation.
