In my research I have combined the areas of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and Second Language Acquisition (SLA) to study the impact of different types of feedback on various types of computer-delivered tasks. I also work with the attentional framework and investigate the degrees of awareness that foreign language learners allocate simultaneously to form vs meaning in the input. More recently, I have begun exploring inter- and intra-ethnic linguistic attitudes among heritage speakers of Spanish and L1 Spanish speakers within the local Hispanic community.
I have taught basic language Spanish courses as well as Special Topics courses that have included "Spanish in Society," "Spanish Language and Hispanic Cultures in the US," and "Spanish Oral Proficiency."
I have also taught courses that are part of our MAT and Undergraduate Teaching Certification Programs, most of which are cross-listed with courses in the Linguistics Program ("Introduction to Spanish Linguistics," and "Second Language Acquisition and Foreign Language Teaching," among others).
