Biography

I am an applied linguist working in the area of second language acquisition and corpus linguistics. My research concerns the acquisition of English as a second/foreign language, with a particular focus on the effects of different types of formal instruction on lexical competence. My other interests include the status of English as a global language, linguistic creativity and corpus-based linguistic analysis.

Current Research

I am currently working on a monograph dealing with the use of corpora for researching vocabulary. It is a guide that introduces corpus linguistics to students, teachers and materials developers. In addition, I participate in a research project that employs psycholinguistic measures to explore the effects of attention on L2 comprehension.

In the past, I was actively involved in research on language testing. Through my work at the Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) in Washington, I gained experience in the development of large-scale language assessment tools for English Language Learners in the USA.
