My research expertise focuses on sociolinguistics, second language acquisition, linguistic diversity, identity, and language attitudes. I am particularly interested in mapping immigrant experiences, their perceptions of locations in urban spaces, and how their speech indexes ideological concepts associated with their home and host countries.
