    Academic Interests:

    Language Pedagogy, Critical Pedagogy, Cultural Studies, Curriculum Theory, Educational Philosophy


    My teaching and research are aimed at developing connections between language, bodies, and movement in a variety of educational contexts. I believe that language and learning are activities that always include the creative use of bodies and space and it is important for educators to understand how these can act as sites of relevant educational, social, and cultural action.
