linguistics + education researcher
I maintain a strong interest in research and nonprofit-based work focused on language equity and educational access. I am especially interested in researching dominant language ideologies within the United States public education system. Thus far, my work has centered on schools in New Mexico, but I am interested in expanding my research in the near future. My work is highly interdisciplinary, and firmly rooted in a social-justice framework.
Through my future research, I hope to (1) illuminate language ideologies and their various ramifications within society and (2) explore concrete solutions that attempt to lessen their harmful consequences.
