Hello! I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student in the Second Language Studies program at Michigan State University.

I am originally from Northern California. I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a B.A. in English literature and received my M.A. in TESOL from San Jose State University.

Here at MSU, I do primarily qualitative research on language policy, dual language programs and language teacher emotions and development. I am also interested in collaborating and conducting interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in the field of economics and education on diverse community spaces and programs.
