About Me



My name is Jeffrey Maloney and I am currently a Ph.D. in Second Language Studies at Michigan State University.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Communications from Brigham Young University – Idaho in 2011. I received a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics from Ohio University in 2014. My main research interest areas are language-student technology use and its impact on language learning. I also have worked in areas of identity and World Englishes.

I am originally from the Cincinnati, Ohio area and I am an avid Nintendo fan. I also thoroughly enjoy hiking, camping, travel, reading and I always enjoy fantastic tales of heroism and magical beasts. In the picture above, I am on the left next to my wife Mallory who is holding our daughter, Rosa.
