I am a fourth-year PhD student at Northwestern University concentrating in sociolinguistics. I am affiliated with SocioGroup and with the Phonatics discussion group. My research interests include the ways in which speakers and listeners construct social meaning together in the shared space of sociolinguistic practice. I aim to explore the processes of how sociolinguistic ideologies affect how linguistic variables, and speakers producing them, are perceived and evaluated.
In 2017, I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a BS in linguistics, and I wrote a thesis on linguistic attitudes in the Honors College at EMU.
