My interests in research and teaching go hand in hand. In my linguistic side, I am interested in perceptual dialectology and corpus linguistics. What fascinates me in perceptual dialectology  is the focus on what people think about others' speech and the investigation into how and why those perceptions are created. Corpus linguistics became my area of interest, because it helps to uncover patterns in language through a systematic, computer analysis of large bodies of text.  Using computers this way, we are able to notice patterns otherwise unnoticeable. I have done research on both and want to continue to do so. As a composition teacher, I also grew an interest in multimodal composition, focusing on organization and structure of those papers.. Through putting text,  images, videos, music, and design together, we are able to better show ourselves through writing, and that is what I am interested in analyzing now (with more angles to come in the future).
