My research interests include a wide range of topics related to second language vocabulary and speech learning. More specifically, my research programs are mainly focused on answering questions of how knowledge of spoken forms of words is learned through exposure to different types of input (e.g.., frequency, talker variability, mode of input) and how lexical and phraseological knowledge is associated with oral proficiency. I have also been involved in a number of meta-analysis projects with the aim of exploring the effectiveness of different approaches to vocabulary instruction such as incidental and intentional vocabulary learning activities.
