Second Language Reading

Ryan Miller

Ryan T. Miller (PhD, Carnegie Mellon University) is an assistant professor in the TESL program. His research focuses on second language reading and writing. Within L2 reading, he investigates how reading and reading sub-skills (e.g., morphological awareness, phonological awareness, lexical inferencing ability) developed in a first language can support reading in a second language. Within L2 writing, he researches development of disciplinary genre knowledge using the framework of Systemic Functional Linguistics.
