Biography

My past research has focused on first and second language acquisition, language assessment, bilingual education, research methods, and the application of evolutionary theory and perceptual control theory to understanding human behavior, learning and education.

I am currently focusing my research activities on what I call Autonomous Technology-Assisted Language Learning (ATALL). ATALL involves using and developing technology, in particular Internet media and communication tools, to enhance education in foreign-languages and cultures.
