Research interests

My research interest is focused on investigating the source-use practice in academic writing. My main concern is to develop a pedagogical scheme for teaching and scaffolding the learning of source-use practice in academic writing, specifically writing in the discipline. My thesis title is:

"Source-use practice across academic research reports in two disciplines: a case of undergraduate second language writers".
