Biography

I received a BA in English at Doshisha University (Kyoto, Japan) and an MA in TESOL at Portland State University (Portland, Oregon). Having taught Japanese at the University of Washington (Seattle, Washington), I then studied in the Interdisciplinary PhD program in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT) at University of Arizona (Tucson, Arizona). Upon completion of the PhD, I taught at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and the University of California, Davis before joining the Department of Linguistics at SOAS.
