Research

2018-2019 Andrew W. Mellon Fellow, Excellence in Pedagogy and Innovative Classrooms (EPIC) Program, Humanities Division, UCLA

Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the EPIC-Mellon Seminars in Teaching Excellence develop "innovative approaches to humanities curricula through productive discussions and collaborations between UCLA and community college faculty." As a 2018-19 Mellon Fellow, I assisted in the development of new, interdisciplinary undergraduate majors for the UCLA Division of Humanities. Specifically, I was part of the team that designed the new Medical Humanities major to bridge the campus's traditional humanities disciplines (English, History, Philosophy, and so on) with UCLA School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and related programs, and offer a new pathway for community college students into the fields of medicine and humanities. Watch my interview about this program on the LACC Collegian website. 

Research Interests

My research interests focus on critical ethnography in applied linguistics, the impact of social identity and personal motivation on language learning, second language curriculum planning and development, academic writing pedagogy, and the use of visual arts in language teaching. Listed below are some of my publications and presentations on these subjects.
