I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and I have been interested in foreign languages for as long as I can remember. In my spare time I enjoy studying meteorology, traveling, and writing fiction. I am currently working toward my Ph.D. in Spanish Linguistics / SLATE (Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education).

Research Interests

  • Second/Third Language Acquisition
  • Multilingualism
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Event-Related Potential (ERP) Methods for Second/Third Language Acquisition
  • Instructed Second/Third Language Acquisition
  • Computer-Assisted Language Learning
  • Mobile Language-Learning Technologies

Research Description

As an academic, I have two main objectives: (1) to produce quality research that furthers our understanding of how a second or third language is acquired, and (2) to utilize these empirical findings to improve second and third language pedagogy. I am particularly interested in the use of technology in the language classroom.
