I study second language acquisition from the perspective of language leaners. I want to understand the experience of second language learning and what learners bring to the language learning process. My publications have focused on individual differences in second language acquisition including cognitive abilities, language anxiety, student belief systems, and conceptual development. I am especially interested in English language learners, anxiety in language teachers, improving second/foreign language teaching, and language teacher education.
