  • TESOL/Applied linguistics

  • Language socialization

  • Second-language writing

  • Chinese as an additional language

  • Internationalization of higher education

  • Case study as a research method

My research addresses issues related to second-language writing and socialization, TESOL/Applied linguistics, the internationalization of higher education, transnationalism, learning Chinese as an additional language, and case study as a research method. I have published work in the Canadian Journal of Higher Education, Global Chinese, The Cambridge Guide to Research in Language Learning and Teaching, and The Handbook of Classroom Discourse and Interaction. My most recent project was supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Doctoral Fellowship.
  • The academic discourse socialization of second-language students in Canadian universities

  • The rise of Mandarin a global language and the sociocultural factors impacting its learning and use
