Nel 2008 ha completato il Dottorato di Ricerca in Linguistica e Didattica della Lingua Italiana a Stranieri presso l’Università per stranieri di Siena con una tesi sugli atteggiamenti linguistici verso le varietà dell’italiano, sia regionali sia straniere.

I suoi interessi di ricerca vertono sulla sociolinguistica dell’italiano e dell’inglese, il marketing cross-culturale, l’insegnamento/apprendimento dell’italiano e dell’inglese come lingue seconde/straniere, l’analisi del discorso di corpora di parlato spontaneo.
