Biography:

My research interests are primarily in corpus linguistics, second language writing, English for Academic Purposes, computer assisted language learning, and second language acquisition. I have had a longstanding interest in issues related to lexical and syntactic complexity. A substantial part of my current research highlights a framework that integrates corpus- and genre-based approaches to academic writing research, pedagogy, and assessment, with a particular focus on the linguistic realizations of different rhetorical and communicative functions in different genres of academic writing.
