I am a Professor of Spanish and Applied Linguistics and the Language Coordinator at the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. I am also an ACTFL certified Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) tester and trainer.

I received my MA and PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the United States. I completed a Masters degree in TESOL and a doctoral degree in Education with a concentration in Second Language Acquisition Teacher Education (SLATE).   My BA degree in English Philology comes from the University of Barcelona, Spain.

I teach courses in Foreign Language Pedagogy, Second Language Acquisition and Spanish Language and Linguistics. I train and supervise Teaching Assistants in the department. My research focuses on Spanish L1 and L2 pragmatics, oral discourse and teaching practices.
