My research interests rest at the intersection of cultural and social psychology, applied and sociolinguistics, and communication science, particularly as these disciplines pertain to intercultural relations and communication. My current research program involves two broad lines of inquiry. The first concerns bilingualism and second language learning, with a focus on how the social context is linked people's experience of intrinsic and self-determined motivation, the process of internalizing a new language into one's sense of self, and the implications of motivated learning for social identity. The second centers on the role of communication in the process of cross-cultural adaptation. For more information about my research, visit the Intercultural Communication Lab website.
