I am a PhD student at the University of Victoria, co-supervised by Dr. Daniela Damian and Dr. Catherine Caws. I hold a BA with a French major and an MA in French, focusing on applied linguistics. I joined SEGAL labs in September 2015, and I am also a research assistant in the UVic Digital Second Language Learning Lab.
My research is focused on the gamification of second language acquisition, and includes the development and implementation of a mobile learning-tool, entitled Explorez. I created Explorez for first-year University French students in order to bridge the gap between gaming and education through quest-based learning and augmented reality. A first iteration of the tool was analyzed for my MA. My PhD research will focus on CSCL and its impact on language learning via the gamified tool.
