Introduction
My main area of research is instructed SLA. In my work, I employ theories and methods from interaction research, psycholinguistics, and corpus linguistics. As a researcher, I primarily work with second language learners and teachers of English and Russian. My skills include quantitative/statistical research methods, mixed-methods research, analysis of language learners’ spoken and written language, and work regarding the research-pedagogy dialogue.

Article
Linguistic complexity serves as an important measure of second language (L2) writing development. Complexity indices, however, rarely feature in the studies of learner languages other than English. Additionally, L2 writing studies have been criticized for the lack of consistency in defining proficiency. The current study addresses these gaps by exp...

Tasked-based peer interaction is an important element in many communicative and TBLT classrooms. Research has shown that peer interaction can benefit second language development and it is often viewed as less stressful than teacher-student interaction. Therefore, task-based peer interaction can be a valuable addition to Russian as a Foreign Languag...

By adopting an autoethnographic approach (Ellis, Adams, & Bochner, 2011), I describe and reflect upon my personal and professional experiences as a Russian language fellow in a Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) program, an interdisciplinary, non-traditional learning initiative that aims to strengthen students’ knowledge of world l...

This study investigated second language (L2) researchers' perceptions of the research-practice relationship. While research use (or lack thereof) in the classroom has been debated by researchers for decades, researchers have rarely investigated themselves as stakeholders in the relationship. However, it is vital to know researchers' approaches to t...

Discussing the recent findings within language education scholarship, the chapter offers a strategy for teachers to incorporate students’ knowledge of other languages, including their first language(s), while learning the second language to support them linguistically, academically, and socially. The authors highlight how translanguaging, the inter...
Article
In this study, the researchers investigated the effects of shared and different first language (L1) background, L1 use amounts, and peer familiarity on the frequency of language‐related episodes (LREs) and task scores in interactive pair work. By exploring these variables in distinct interactions, the authors attempted to obtain a more fine‐grained...

In this case study, we investigated motivation dynamics of two graduates from a Russian immersion program in the United States: in retrospect (before and immediately after the program) and several years after the program. Drawing upon the data from a motivation survey, interviews, and written work tagged to three timeframes, we explored why (L2) le...

In line with recent multifactorial work by Gries and Deshors (Deshors, 2016; Gries & Deshors, 2014), we investigated the effects of various semantic and syntactic factors and their interactions on article misuse in the Russian sub-corpus of the International Corpus of Learner English (ICLE). In this paper, we report the results of a pilot study of...
