Research

My Ph.D. research focused on L1 acquisition, more specifically the syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of completive and inceptive particle verbs and their acquisition.

More recent work has been dedicated to L2 acquisition, in particular L2 writing, teaching and learning with technology, and English for professional purposes.

For current projects, see here.
