I am a Ph.D. candidate in Romance Languages (Linguistics) at UGA. My current research includes language variation and change, grammaticalization, and computational and corpus linguistics.
My dissertation aims to create a quantifiable system that can be used to measure grammaticalization from a synchronic perspective. Specifically, I examine temporal anchors and their gradience in Spanish.
In the past, I taught courses in Spanish (1110, 2001, 1001E), held the position of Director of the Spanish Language Community, and headed up the Spanish Conversation Table. Currently, I teach SPAN 2001 and SPAN 3050. I also lead the Spanish Conversation Table for LACSI.
Don't hesitate to contact me directly with any questions relative to my research or any of the programs and courses listed above. I look forward to hearing from you!
