My research is focused on the study of natural language interaction in Native American languages, with Arapaho as the language I have worked with the most. I examine formal performance and narrative as well as everyday conversation, relying heavily on video-based documentation and the creation of large databases of natural interaction. Most recently I have been moving increasingly towards collaboration with computational colleagues, given the large datasets. I have a broader interest in language, culture and ideology, with a special interest in language maintenance and revitalization, as well as the ethnography of language shift.
