Welcome! As Assistant Professor and Coordinator of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Columbia College, and in cooperation with others, I have the high privilege of working with students from all over the world, helping them to achieve their language learning goals in English. Learning opportunities are not restricted to the classroom. In ESOL, we take part in field trips, reading clubs, coffee hours, and other social/cultural activities. Research interests include topics that tie into language acquisition, including foreign and second language pedagogy.
