PhD Student/ Department of Spanish and Portuguese

I am a PhD student at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and my research interests are phonetics and phonology, bilingualism, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, and Spanish in the US. I decided to become a volunteer in LASER this year because it is having a very positive impact in the Latinx community and it is helping high school students become aware of the resources that are available to them. I am sure that this will be a very rewarding experience and that I will learn a lot from it!
