I’m currently a full time lecturer at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

I received my PhD in English with concentrations in applied linguistics and TESL from Oklahoma State University in 2011. My main research interests include Cognitive Linguistics, Construction Grammar, corpus linguistics, and second language writing. Most recently, I have been studying fictive apologies as well as the use of simulations and language corpora in teaching English for Academic Purposes.
