My main area of research is around migration, language, learning and technology in various permutations. I am interested in the application of technology for using, learning and teaching languages and the interplay of linguistic and digital practices of multilingual and transnational families.I am not currently accepting new doctoral students. For information about my current students and their work, please see the Learning and Teaching Languages Research Lab page
