Funded Research: Since my arrival at the University of Calgary, I have developed and maintained a robust research program involving a number of interconnecting projects. My academic position at the University of Calgary has enabled me to receive competitive funding for seventeen research projects, culminating in a research grant total of $319.003. I have received funding from SSHRC, CIHR and the Alberta Centre for Child Family and Community Research. I have presented a total of forty two refereed academic conference papers at international meetings such as the American Education Researchers Association. On a national and local level I have presented at thirty seven conferences.
Most Significant Career Research Contributions:
My work in the area of multilingualism has been recognized through an administrative appointment. I served as the Associate Director of the Language Research Center at the University of Calgary from 2010 to 2012. 2012 Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Connection Grant, (2012–2014). Naqvi, R. (PI), O’Brien, M. G., & Curtin, S. University of Calgary, Complete. $47,098, Interdisciplinary Approaches to Multilingualism, www.ucalgary.ca/iam2013
This Conference was the first of its kind, which brought together the work of researchers, educators, and policy makers in the areas of first and second language acquisition from language pedagogy and psycholinguistic perspectives. Our goal was to provide an opportunity for participants to engage with the implications of multilingualism from a range of perspectives, including the effects of being bilingual from childhood to adulthood, the process and benefits of learning multiple languages, and the impact of multilingualism on society.
Counseling Service for Parents of Bilingual Children launched in collaboration with Professor Jürgen Meisel through the Language Research Center in February 2011.
Dual language book reading program launched through funding received from the Alberta
Center for Child Family and Community Research, $70,000 (2008-2010) and $38,700 (2014-2015)
