Hello! My name is Matt Kessler, and I am a PhD candidate in the Second Language Studies program at Michigan State University (MSU).
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I received an MA in Applied Linguistics from Ohio University. Prior to joining MSU, I taught English in Thailand through a Fulbright grant, and I also served as an executive communications and grant writer for The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
Now in my second-year at MSU, I serve as an assistant to the co-editors of TESOL Quarterly; I also teach an undergraduate-level course on ESL/EFL language teaching methods. My primary research interests center around second language (L2) writing, genre, and L2 writing development, but I am also interested in computer-assisted language learning and research-pedagogy connections.
