I as a researcher take a big step forward in challenging taken-for-granted neoliberal/monolingual theories, practices, and pedagogies in where we use and educate languages. I will continue to direct my efforts toward some hidden issues there.

My areas of research include language assessment (test development & validation);  language (testing) policy and planning; (critical) discourse analysis; language ideologies and subjectivities; (social) semiotics; neoliberalism and critical applied linguistics (about commodification, McCommunication, verbal hygiene, technopoly culture); multi-/plural turns (from monolingualism to lingua franca, translingual, metrolingual, ecological practice in globalization, (early) study abroad, migration, (dis-)citizenship); language identities and rights; narrative inquries, storytelling pedagogy, oral proficiency.
