Melissa Nieves Rivera

LASER Hub Coordinator

I am a PhD student at the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. My research interests are the semantic and pragmatics of underrepresented languages and Spanish dialects, and the role of numerical cognition in language. I decided to become a coordinator in LASER because I want to contribute to the Latinx community in Columbus by helping high school students with their transition from high school to college and share my knowledge of this process.
