|Degrees:||BMath (Waterloo), MA & PhD in Linguistics (Toronto)|
I have been teaching linguistics and Spanish at Carleton University since 2012 and I have found that the diverse strengths of the School of Linguistics and Language Studies support and inspire my research and teaching.
I completed a BMath from the University of Waterloo in 2002, then decided to pursue a lifelong interest in linguistics and languages by completing an MA and PhD in linguistics in 2007 and 2012, respectively, from the University of Toronto.
In my research program, I take an experimental approach to investigating phonetics and phonology. I focus primarily on sociophonetic patterns in various dialects of Spanish and the acquisition of the phonology of Spanish as a second language.
