My research is dedicated to multimodal discourses, including gesture, movement, facial display, spatial orientation, image, and sound as well as speech and writing. My PhD research focused on the roles of instructors’ multimodal strategies in student engagement. My research draws on Genre Studies (including research projects on suicide notes and university mathematics lecturing) and the use of gesture in teaching. My research interests include multimodal theory, genre and writing studies, and social interaction including sociolinguistics and pragmatics. I teach undergraduate ALDS courses on written and oral language analysis, discourse analysis, and writing studies.
