Education professor Dr. Danièle Moore along with seven of Simon Fraser University’s leading academic scholars have become the first to receive the prestigious title of Distinguished SFU Professor. This new designation recognizes their outstanding performance and achievements, and celebrates their international pre-eminence in their fields.
The Distinguished SFU Professor title comes with a special requirement for members to share their work with the public through events such as lectures, panels and presentations. This recognition not only spotlights the contribution they have made to their fields in the past, but also helps them magnify that impact through public engagement and student and faculty mentorship.
Dr. Moore studies how we learn and use multiple languages. Her research includes code-switching—changes in language and dialect depending on context—as well as government language policies and revitalizing languages. From 2011-2018, she co-edited The Canadian Modern Language Review.
