My research interests focus on issues surrounding the learning of English as a second/additional language, particularly issues regarding identity construction in and through language learning, power dynamics, and language ideologies. I investigate how these social dynamics are constituted in/as interaction, using fine-grained discourse analysis.
My current research examines the construction of language ideologies in interactions involving minority language speakers, how learner agency is constituted in discourse, and qualitative research methodologies, particularly the co-constructed, mediated nature of interview data.
