Research/ Academic Interests
My primary research interest is in how an individual's social identities can interact with both their overt perceptions of language and underlying language processing mechanisms. My other linguistic areas of research are LGBTQ+, feminist, and other activist discourse, and Spanish-English/Chinese-English bilingual phenomena.
