My research primarily focuses on interaction and second language acquistion- in particular, how interaction facilitates second language learning in instructed settings, among children and among adults. This includes work on individual differences (e.g. working memory and language aptitude), the role of noticing, the place of corrective feedback, and of learner's output in language development. Most recently, I am researching the complementary nature of teacher-student and peer interaction in classrooms. Related to this is the exploration of learner engagement during classroom interaction in primary, secondary and tertiary education contexts.
