Thank you for visiting my homepage.

I’m an assistant professor in the TESL/Applied Linguistics program at Iowa State University. My current research focuses on the intersection of second language writing, technology, and self-regulated learning. I’m especially interested in innovative uses of computers for 1) helping students become more skilled and self-directed in learning how to write in English for academic purposes and 2) facilitating research into learner self-regulation and strategy use.

I also teach graduate and undergraduate courses in teaching methodology, computer-assisted language learning, and linguistics. In addition, I coordinate one multi-section course on grammatical analysis for undergraduates and another on academic writing for international students.
