About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Spanish Linguistics at the University of Alabama. My research interests center on bilingualism, specifically as it relates to the syntax of code-switching using quantitative / experimental methods. This includes heritage speaker bilingualism, Second Language Acquisition, as well as any other point on the bilingual spectrum (e.g., early vs. late, simultaneous vs. consecutive).

I am originally from northeastern Wisconsin, and I spent multiple years living and studying in Madison and Chicago. I like to travel and take pictures while I do so. My home away from home is in northern Spain, and I also left my heart in Buenos Aires. When I’m not traveling, I like to do the complete opposite — staying put while watching lots and lots of television and movies.
