About Me

I'm a fourth year PhD Candidate and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Washington. My research is primarily in the areas of computational sociophonetics and sign linguistics.

Some current research projects:

Education and Outreach:

  • Instructing for Software Carpentry, a volunteer organization which offers free introductory courses in scientific computing (Unix shell, Python, R, Git, SQL).
  • Mentoring through the Women In Linguistics Mentoring Alliance. (WILMA)
  • Writing a blog to introduce linguistics concepts to a lay audience.
  • Volunteering at outreach events such as Paws On Science at the Pacific Science Center.
