Department of Spanish and Portuguese

Graduated with MA 2015

I studied Hispanic Linguistics in the department of Spanish & Portuguese. My research interests include sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology, second language acquisition, languages in contact, and grammaticalization. I am also very interested in speech practices that involve the use of multiple languages (code-switching and mixing) and how speaker and group identity is negotiated through these practices. Apart from my coursework and research endeavors, I also taught and tutored Beginning Spanish at CU. In the future, I hope to continue conducting research in Hispanic Linguistics, with the hopes of conducting fieldwork in Latin America and Europe.
