I am an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Montclair State University. I held a previous position as a Lecturer of TESOL at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil. In 2022, I completed my PhD in Applied Linguistics at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ. My MA in ELT was completed at Warwick University in Coventry, UK and my BA in English and Portuguese Teaching was obtained from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul.

My research interest lies in corpus-based approaches to register variation, academic discourse, and second language writing. I have published my work in the Journal of English for Academic Purposes, Register Studies, Journal of Reading as a Foreign Language, among others.

Most of my research is informed by my experience as a Portuguese and English language teacher. I taught EFL/ESL classes in Brazil and in the US and Portuguese as a Foreign/Second Language in Brazil, the US and the UK.

Here at MSU, I coordinate the Laboratory for Applied Corpus Linguistics Research in Schmitt Hall, room 370.
