III. Skills and other area/s of interest

I am interested in the fields of Applied & Educational Linguistics specifically investigating the interaction between affective filters and communicative competence among L2 learners in local and rural areas. One of my current research projects is the assessment of the English Competency among the first batch of Senior High School graduates of the country’s K to 12 program with the end goal of providing recommendations for the improvement of the curriculum and the teaching and learning processes involved.

My other activities include singing, content writing and editing, and coaching students in various academic competitions.
