My publications have five major themes: 1.) the scholarship of teaching and learning in linguistics and in higher education as a whole; 2.) the professionalization of linguistics as a discipline; 3.) the intersections of linguistics with education, speech and hearing, and general education; 4.) empirical research in linguistics on language and culture in education, particularly for Black students; and 5.) patient narrative about my experiences with advanced lung cancer. A key aspect of my work is intentional collaboration based on the expertise of my peer faculty co-authors and the use of publication as a teaching mechanism for junior colleagues, graduate, and undergraduate students. My work is funded by the National Science Foundation.
