I am a linguist, currently serving as program coordinator for the NSF-funded REU site Intersection of Linguistics, Language, and Culture. I am also available for linguistics consulting, dissertation/other selective copy editing, and CUNY IRB applications (in IDEATE). I work for ETS as a TOEIC rater, and I am a contributing author to Grammar Girl. In addition, I am a PhD candidate in linguistics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, where I have earned my MA and my MPhil. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from SUNY New Paltz with a BA in French.
Previously, I served as a writing fellow at Bronx Community College, after holding a full-time faculty position in the Humanities department at LaGuardia College in Long Island City, where I taught courses in the Communication Studies concentration.
Before that, I was a linguistics index editor for the International Bibliography of the Modern Language Association. While holding this position, I completed a five-year Enhanced Chancellor’s Doctoral Fellowship in linguistics at the Graduate Center, where I have worked on semantics, first language acquisition, and sociolinguistics. I completed my fellowship program with a Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) fellowship at the New York City College of Technology. Prior to that, I was a Graduate Teaching Fellow in the Hunter College Department of English, where I taught an introductory linguistics course called Structure of Modern English, along with English as a Second Language, and Expository Writing. I was also lab manager and research assistant at the Language Acquisition Research Center in the Department of Psychology during my tenure at Hunter.
On the side, I volunteer by guiding permanent residents through the citizenship application process, by walking surplus restaurant food to homeless shelters, and by sending books to the incarcerated across the country.
