I am an Associate Professor at the Spanish Division of the Department of Languages and Literatures of Europe and the Americas at the University of Hawai`i, Manoa. I am originally from Valladolid, Spain.
My main areas of interest are the intersections of technology and TBLT (Task-based Language Teaching) and technology and L2 pragmatics; Conversation Analysis for L2 interaction; teacher training; and assessment.
I teach courses on Spanish language, linguistics, second language acquisition, teacher training, and CALL. Several of them are fully online or hybrids. I enjoy working with the technology and I am the Webmaster for the Dept. of LLEA.
