Hello! My name is Matt Kessler, and I am an Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of South Florida (USF).
At USF, I am a faculty member in the Department of World Languages where I teach classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I also serve as a core faculty member for the department's PhD program in Linguistics and Applied Language Studies. My primary research interests center on exploring issues related to second language (L2) writing and literacy, especially pertaining to L2 writers' development across different genres and academic/professional contexts. Additional research interests include computer-assisted language learning and research-pedagogy connections.
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I received an MA in Applied Linguistics from Ohio University before receiving a PhD in Second Language Studies from Michigan State University.
