As of Fall 2012, I am a second-year PhD student in French Linguistics. I am also a TA for the freshman UGS course Bilingual Language Mixing. I received my BA with majors in French and Linguistics from the University of Florida in 2011.
I became interested in North American French after completing a French immersion program in a small town in Québec in 2006. As an undergraduate, I furthered this interest through research on the language practices of Québécois snowbirds in Florida, resulting in a joint publication with my mentor at UF (see the Publications tab). Complementing my coursework, my future research interests include the phonetic outcomes of French-English codeswitching in Québec and other issues dealing with francophone bilingualism and contact in North America.
Outside of class, I enjoy exploring Austin, playing volleyball with the Austin Sports and Social Club, and expanding my vinyl collection. Last spring, I also co-directed the annual UT undergrad French play, a production of Racine's Les Plaideurs.
