I am a University Graduate Fellow in the Department of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, pursuing a Ph.D. in Language Science and Spanish. My research focuses on the cognitive underpinnings of bilingual language representation, processing, and production: how are two languages represented in the mind of a single speaker, and what consequences does this have for language comprehension and production?
I received my B.A in Linguistics and Spanish from the University of Florida in 2014, and am affiliated with the Language and Brain Labs at said campus. Aside from voraciously consuming articles in language science, I spend my free time playing the piano, cycling, and attempting to finish that novel I started four years ago. I also have a passion for discussion and learning, and enjoy striking up conversations with individuals of all walks of life, learning about their experiences.
