I have over 10 years of experience working on collaborative, international research projects. In my current position at Trellis Strategies, I direct my research skills towards improving student success at under-served institutions of higher education. During my PhD in Linguistics, I worked with the Ticha Project, an interdisciplinary team of Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars to make Zapotec language and history more accessible to a transnational Zapotec audience.
I’m interested in mixed-methods research with a strong qualitative bent. I love building data-driven solutions that help make people’s lives better!
I enjoy working on projects that center the needs of the research participants and that feed into direct action in support of community goals.
As a linguist, I am trained to think analytically about language & culture, including intercultural communication, accessibility, and language justice.
