Dr. Hardy is an applied linguist with interests in language education and corpus linguistics. Much of his research is motivated by a hope to apply his findings towards the teaching of writing (for both native and non-native speakers). Of particular interest to him is the lexico-grammatical variation found in the writing of different academic disciplines.

He has published articles and book chapters on research methodology, student writing, online writing, World Englishes, formulaic language, and second language teacher education. In addition to research on English, Dr. Hardy has also worked on projects involving Spanish, French, and Chinese.

In 2014, Corpus-based Sociolinguistics: A Guide for Students, co-authored with Eric Friginal, was published. This is a textbook designed for advanced students to learn about how corpora can be used to study social variables and to explore first-hand how to conduct their own sociolinguistic research using quantitative methods.
