Hello! My name is Matt Kessler, and I am a PhD candidate in the Second Language Studies program at Michigan State University (MSU).
I am originally from Columbus, Ohio, and I received an MA in Applied Linguistics from Ohio University. Following my MA, I taught English in Thailand through a Fulbright grant. I then served as an executive communications and grant writer for The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
Now in my third year at MSU, I serve as the editorial assistant to the co-editors of TESOL Quarterly. My primary research interests center around exploring issues related to second language (L2) writing and literacy, especially concerning L2 learners' development across different genres and academic/professional contexts. Additional research interests include exploring facets of computer-assisted language learning, along with research-pedagogy connections.
