“Upon my return to the U.S., I will incorporate the data collected during the Fulbright grant into my dissertation, “Developing Intercultural Communication with English as a Lingua Franca Strategies,” and complete my Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics. I will share findings and best practices in both research and teaching areas, including conference presentations, peer-reviewed journal articles, teacher training sessions and lesson materials, and general interest avenues such as blogs/online forums. Ultimately, I aim to secure a university faculty position and continue my research on ELF and global intercultural communication. I aspire to share my findings through a combination of traditional venues and public-facing scholarship with the goal of advancing understanding and mutual respect across national, linguistic, and ethnic boundaries.”
