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