About Me

Hello! I am a doctoral candidate in the  Linguistics Department at the CUNY Graduate Center. My main research interests are in laboratory phonology and phonetics. 

From 2009 – June 2020, I was  an adjunct instructor at LaGuardia Community College, where I taught introductory linguistics courses and academic ESL in the Education & Language Acquisition Department.

Aside from my academic work, I love experiencing New York/Maryland mom life to my 8 and 5  year old daughters, and stay fit as a #tracyandersonmethod athlete.

    Hello Professor,

    My name is Jonathan Gomes and I was a former student of your ELL 101 class. I honestly cannot remember when, perhaps 3 years ago but I’m just writing to tell you briefly that your class has helped me a lot in recent times. I was a liberal arts student taking ASL as electives and I’m currently studying upstate in Rochester for my B.A. degree in American Sign Language Interpretation. I’m currently taking linguistics of ASL and I must say that your class provided a really solid foundation for me. Linguistics of ASL is also really fascinating. So I just wanted to thank you.
