Short Bio
My expertise encompasses two major areas. First, I specialize in Applied Linguistics. Second, I have expertise in advanced quantitative research methods. The research domains that I am interested in are:

(1) How formal instruction can enhance the acquisition of a second language?

(2) What are some novel quantitative methods to examine the effectiveness of instruction in the second language acquisition (SLA) process?

To research these domains, I routinely devise and apply Bayesian and meta-analytic methods. The results of my research have appeared in journals such as "Language Learning", "Modern Language Journal", and "Second Language Research".
