California State University, Los Angeles
Assistant Professor
Los Angeles
I am an Assistant Professor in the M.A. in TESOL Program in the division of Applied and Advanced Studies in Education at the Charter College of Education, at California State University, Los Angeles. I am originally from Brazil where I worked as an EFL teacher for 12 years at Binational Centers, at junior high and high schools, and as a certified oral examiner and rater for the University of Cambridge and Michigan ESOL proficiency exams. While residing in the United States for the past 10 years, I have coordinated ESL programs working as Director of Education and Teacher Training at language schools, and taught international students in credit and non-credit programs at the University of California Los Angeles and Santa Monica College. Besides teaching, my main research interests in TESOL and Applied Linguistics are language assessment, language and cognition, language evolution, and neurobiology of language learning and use.

I am particularly interested in the role of the autonomic nervous system in social engagement behaviors during face-to-face interactions in first and second language production. I make use of psychophysiological and behavioral data in multimodal discourse analysis in order to study language use during communicative events. Communicative behaviors during conversation involve cooperative organization of human language and action, but are also influenced by psychological individual differences and neurophysiological biomarkers such as heart rate variability. Accounting for individual psychophysiological characteristics of the co-participants engaged in a communicaitve event can expand our understanding of linguistic embodiment during such interactions.
