Research Interests

My research focuses predominantly on issues in language education and language teacher education, covering ESL/EFL as well as languages other than English. In particular, I have a strong interest in barriers and enablers associated with language policy and curriculum reforms, the application of digital technologies in language education, and the development of intercultural skills through language education.
