Education
M.A. in Linguistics, Université de Franche-Comté, France (2009); B.A. in Linguistics, Université de Franche-Comté, France (2007)

I studied French as a second language and instructional technology, and earned a M.A. in Linguistics from Université de Franche-Comté, France. I am currently teaching Japanese at Clemson University.

My research interests focus on learner autonomy in foreign language learning and its related fields such as motivational strategies, learning counseling, and the use of the language resource center for self-directed learning. My teaching philosophy is to provide students a motivating and comfortable learning environment while I maintain the role of a facilitator in and outside of the classroom. I also advise the Clemson University Japanese Cultural Association.
