Hello! I’m a doctoral candidate (ABD) in linguistics at the CUNY Graduate Center. My research interests are in laboratory phonology, phonetics, prosody, and Austronesian languages, particularly Tagalog (a Philippine language).
I’m also an adjunct instructor at LaGuardia Community College, where I have taught introductory linguistics courses and academic ESL in the Education & Language Acquisition Department since Fall 2009.
Aside from my academic work, I enjoy hiking and just enjoying the outdoors (a few places are in the above pictures), and sampling the diverse cuisine in NYC, activities which I now get to share with my loquacious 2-year old daughter.
