My main research areas have been in language acquisition (especially the comparison of English and Japanese), bilingual development (especially in Spanish-English bilingualism), bilingual education policy, and most recently, affirmative action in higher education. I have also written and edited research-based books that are intended for non-technical and policy audiences. I have had fabulous collaborators and students throughout my career, in fact I consider it the single best source of my own success in identifying and working with great colleagues -- I will not play a "favorites" game for my publications and collaborators on this web page, but I have many favorites and feel extraordinarily lucky.
