Research Pursuits 【 display / non-display

  • My research has focused on a variety of areas related to language learning and teaching. I am particularly interested in bilingual lexical processing, that is, how language users recognise and produce words in different languages and the influence that one language has upon another. I am also very interested in usage-based approaches to language acquisition, including connectionism. I am also very keen to research aspects of language teaching methodology, such as peer feedback, and I am very interested in language testing, particularly in washback, that is, the influence that tests have upon teaching and learning.

Educational Pursuits 【 display / non-display

  • I teach 12 classes per academic year, including graduate courses in Second Language Acquisition, Language Teaching Methodology for upper level students, English Phonetics for sophomores, IELTS and TOEFL preparation courses, as well as English composition, presentation and other language classes.

Future Research Plans, Research Prospects, and Joint Research Potential 【 display / non-display

  • I have broad-ranging interests in language learning and teaching and will continue to research various issues. I will continue conducting behavioural experiments into cognitive processing and use various advanced statistics. I will also expand my work in language testing as this is a crucial aspect of language education in Japan, and one which demands greater academic attention. I am also still very interested in peer feedback and second language writing and wish to develop my research in this area using both qualitative and quantitative methods.
