   CV, JAN 2021.docx

I completed a PhD in Curriculum and Studies in Applied Linguistics at Western University under the supervision of Dr. Stuart Webb and Dr. Farahnaz Faez. My PhD project focused on measuring productive depth of vocabulary knowledge of the most frequent words. My interest lies mainly in language assessment, vocabulary knowledge, Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language, and English for Academic Purposes.

I am a TESL certified teacher by TESL Canada and TESL Ontario, a certified CELPIP instructor by Paragon Testing Enterprises, and a certified IELTS teacher by British Council as language assessment and preparation for language tests have been my areas of interest and expertise.
