Biography

I am an Adjunct Professor of Linguistics at the University of North Texas. As a sociolinguist, I study the social aspects of language variation. My research focuses on the perception/production of linguistic variation and the relationship between language and place. I’m interested in the connections that link sounds with social meaning and methodological approaches for analyzing linguistic data with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). My BA and MA in Linguistics are from the University of North Texas, where I worked with Patricia Cukor-Avila, Haj Ross, and Chetan Tiwari. My PhD in Linguistics is from Rice University, where I worked with Nancy Niedzielski and Stephen Klineberg. I am also passionate about language teaching pedagogy and designing programs based in linguistic principles. I currently serve as the Director of Language Programs at LanGo Institute, a language school that connects people with unique language learning opportunities, where I design language programs that incorporate knowledge about language science, linguistic variation and change, and how language reflects and shapes culture.
