Hello! My name is Matt Kessler, and I am a Ph.D. student in the Second Language Studies program at Michigan State University (MSU).
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I received my M.A. in Applied Linguistics from Ohio University where I also taught for the English Language Improvement Program. Prior to joining MSU, I taught English in Thailand through a Fulbright grant before serving as an executive communications and grant writer for The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
Now in my second-year at MSU, I teach an undergraduate course on language teaching methodology, and I previously served as a research assistant for Dr. Charlene Polio. My primary research interests center around second language (L2) writing and L2 writing development, but I am also interested in computer-assisted language learning and language teaching pedagogy.
