I am an assistant professor of Linguistics and Applied Linguistics at the Department of English at Arizona State University. As an applied sociolinguist, I study written documents and recorded interactions using various discourse-analytic approaches. My work is informed by language policy, linguistic anthropology, pragmatics, and sociophonetics. I have published in several prestigious journals, including Applied Corpus Linguistics, The Journal of Pragmatics, and Discourse Studies. Here’s more about my research, teaching, and service.
In my (very little) spare time, I like to stay active by working out. I also enjoy designing websites and posters, spending time with my adorable nieces, and hanging out with my friends and siblings. I love all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ, but dislike the feeling of having overindulged after. Oh! And I end my sentences with prepositions.
