Ryan T. Miller
I am a student in the Second
Language Acquisition Ph.D. program in the Department of Modern Languages
at Carnegie Mellon University.
My interests revolve around second language literacy.
I am interested in L2 reading from a cognitive/psycholinguistic perspective.
In particular, my research focuses on lexical inferencing, and its
component sub-skills, including the role of metalinguistic awareness. I
am also interested in cross-orthographic word recognition.
I aim for my research to produce findings that aid L2 reading
instruction. I am also interested in second language reading assessment.
Before coming to CMU, I earned my MA in TESOL at Michigan State University, where I taught at the English Language Center, and my BA in Linguistics and German in the Residential College at the University of Michigan. In addition, I taught for a number of years at various levels in Japan, including elementary school, junior high school, at a non-profit education center, and as an adjunct lecturer at universities.
