I also have an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Northern Arizona University and a B.A. in English from Millsaps College. My research interests include corpus linguistics, disciplinary writing, Systemic Functional Linguistics, and computer-assisted language learning.  I’m especially interested in the development of academic writing.
