Curriculum Vitae

I completed a BA in Geography/Environmental Studies with a minor in Linguistics at the University of California, Los Angeles. After working briefly as a laboratory scientist doing paleoclimate research at Sonoma State University and UC Berkeley, I decided to continue my studies in Linguistics by pursuing a PhD at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa focusing on language documentation and conservation. I am currently in the final years of the PhD program there and came to Max Planck as a visiting scholar to work on developing interdisciplinary research methods to apply to my dissertation.
