I’m a professor of Spanish in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the University of New Hampshire. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin with a specialization in applied linguistics and foreign language education. I worked as an Assistant Professor of Spanish at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh from 1993-1996 before I joined the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at UNH in the fall 1996. I teach courses in second language acquisition, teaching methods, Spanish language and applied linguistics. Until recently, I was the Coordinator of the Elementary Spanish program at UNH where I trained and supervised graduate teaching assistants. I served as Chair of the Department from Fall 2013 to Spring 2016. My primary areas of research interest include computer-mediated communication, online feedback and discourse analysis. I have written and published articles regarding using Internet technology for L2 teaching and learning. My articles have appeared in refereed journals, such as Foreign Language Annals, Hispania, Language Learning & Technology, CALICO, CALL, ReCALL, System, Language Awareness, and International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching. I have also designed online activities to accompany three major textbooks: Mosaicos, Avenidas and Puentes. A copy of my CV can be viewed to learn more about my professional activities.
