Research

I am a  researcher in English Education and Educational Linguistics, focusing on understanding the linguistics of academic and civic genres and developing curricula and pedagogies for these genres. My dissertation examined the genre and linguistic features of student writing in secondary education in order to develop future curriculum and instructional models for composition education.

I have several research projects in process.

Community College Writing Genres
Collection and description of student writing genres that are produced in a community college setting. Development of pedagogical applications of genre descriptions. Genre and linguistic analysis using Systemic Functional Linguistics and the UAM Corpus Tool.

Academic and Civic Writing Genres
Collection and description of specific academic and civic writing genres–e.g. rhetorical analysis, letters to elected officials, etc. Development of pedagogical applications of genre descriptions. Genre and linguistic analysis using Systemic Functional Linguistics and the UAM Corpus Tool.
