Bio:

I completed an MA in Linguistics at Victoria University of Wellington in 1985, and subsequently returned in 1990 for the one year Diploma in Teaching English as a Second Language. I then decided to do a PhD in Linguistics, which I completed in 1997 at the University of Pennsylvania under the supervision of Gillian Sankoff, William Labov, Terry Crowley and Howard Giles.
