I am a doctoral student in the Department of Linguistics. My research interests lie primarily in the study of everyday language use, using the framework of conversation analysis. My dissertation research looks at the interactional functions of the response particle “no” in conversational English. I also maintain strong interests in sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology, especially in the study of language and identity, computer-mediated discourse, and language, gender, and sexuality.
