Hi! I am a PhD candidate in linguistics at Michigan State University. I primarily conduct research in phonetics, phonology, and sociolinguistics. My advisor is Dr. Suzanne Evans Wagner and my other research committe members are Dr. Karthik Durvasula, Dr. Yen-Hwei Lin, and Dr. Aaron Dinkin. Here is the link, to my CV.
I have been teaching since 2010. In that time, I've taught English as a Second Language (ESL), and Lingusitics courses at both the University of Texas at Arlington and Michigan State University.
I run the Lingusitics Writing and Accountability Group. The group meets for 2 hours each week. We spend about half an hour discussing the steps we've made towards reaching our yearly writing goals and spend the rest of the time writing in-house. If you are interested in joining the group, we meet in the Sociolinguistcs Lab (Wells Hall B-411) on Thursdays at 9am. All are welcome!
When I am not doing research, teaching, or writing, I enjoy traveling, weight training, and dabling in photography (I took the photos on this page!).
Feel free to peruse this site to learn more about how I spend my days. Cheers!
