About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Spanish Linguistics at the University of Alabama. My research interests center on bilingualism, with a particular focus on the syntax of code-switching using quantitative / experimental methods. I am also interested in heritage Spanish, Second Language Acquisition, methodological concerns in bilingual research, and so much more.

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. Oh, and now I cook a lot too! Pies are my favorite, both to make and to eat.
