  • As a violinist, I enjoy drawing on musical analogies to make my teaching more meaningful. My research centers around expertise acquisition, effective pedagogical approaches for the consecutive and simultaneous interpretation classroom, and learner autonomy. Recent interpretation assignments include conferences on new Internet technologies and energies, venture capital, paleontology, human rights, education, and government.

  • Issues relating to terrorism and nuclear weapons, particularly in South Asia, are at the center of my research. I look at terrorist group decision making and strategies including financing, CBNR (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear) terrorism, and group rivalry and cooperation. I also examine nuclear tension in the subcontinent and issues related to the security of nuclear weapons in Pakistan.

  • My research includes teacher education, supervision, and development; second language acquisition; language assessment; classroom research; and research methodology. I focus on the broad themes of how languages are taught and learned, teacher development, and language assessment–all topics that strongly influence how our profession moves forward internationally.

  • How we filter and perceive information depends on our preexisting ideas and assumptions. So, I first try to help learners uncover their deep-seated ideas and assumptions, examine them, and, potentially, replace them with a more accurate view of reality. I encourage focused learning though uniquely designed sessions that help students actively reflect on their thought patterns and experiences.
