About me

Associate Professor of Spanish & Linguistics

Department of Romance Languages
Wake Forest University

I received my PhD from the University of Arizona in Linguistics and Cognitive Science. My research focuses on the use of large-scale language archives (‘corpora’) from a variety of sources (news, social media, and other internet sources) to better understand the linguistic and cultural similarities and differences between varieties of the Spanish language (native dialect and non-native/ learner language) for both scholarly and pedagogical projects. I’ve published on topics including the development, annotation, and evaluation of corpora and explored computational methodologies such as text classification and clustering algorithms. I also have experience working with and teaching web development, database design, and statistical programming with R and Python.

I currently teach both upper-division undergraduate courses for the Spanish major/minor, core and elective courses for the Linguistics program, and Master’s courses in the Translation and Interpreting Studies program.
