I am an applied linguist and a language teacher with a PhD in Linguistics, a Master of Applied Linguistics and a MEd in KFL.

My research areas include: error analysis and teaching methodology in L2 Korean; curriculum issues in Korean at both secondary and tertiary levels; sociolinguistic issues with reference to Korean L2 or HL situations.

I have undertaken a number of research projects funded by the government agencies and UNSW. My recent research books include Korean Heritage Language Maintenance, Learning and Development: Australian Practices and Perspectives (ed.) (Seoul: Sotong Publishing, 2019). I am currently undertaking monograph projects on language maintenance and and cultural identity focused on Korean ethnic communities and bicultural families.
