Current Program: MA in LING

I completed my MA in Linguistics at Carleton. My MA thesis focuses on the acoustic realization of the stop voicing contrast in Argentine Spanish which can contribute to our understanding of lenition processes and contrast maintenance in varieties of Spanish. To broaden my knowledge of Linguistics and expand my research on Spanish, I will continue my studies in Linguistics, Language Documentation and Revitalization at Carleton University. In future, I would like to work on indigenous-Spanish language contact.
