Research areas include:            

Minoritised languages in education; Multilingual education policy and pedagogy; Language politics; Indigenous language reclamation; Language ideologies; Isthmus Zapotec (Mexico); Anishinaabemowin (US & Canada); Action-research; Ethnography; Interactional Sociolinguistics; Linguistic Anthropology
