I am a Professor of ESL/EFL Teacher Professional Development in the Department of Instructional Systems Technology (IST) in the School of Education (SoE), Indiana University.  I have also been appointed as the SoE's 2022 Faculty Fellow for Global & International Engagement.

I research & design in-person & online professional development (PD) programs for professionals, including second/foreign language teachers. I have developed projects in multiple locations, for example, in 25 Indiana districts, in Beijing & Kunming (PRC), in Tetovo, Republic of N. Macedonia, in San Ramon, Costa Rica, & in Istanbul, Turkey, etc. ​My current projects involve culturally & linguistically-inclusive online PD programs.

I teach a blended load of in-person and online IST & Adult Education graduate-level courses.
