Lecturer
PhD, University of Pittsburgh, Linguistics (2013)

I teach courses in academic writing, speaking, and listening to graduate students during the academic year. I also teach a practicum-style class in the linguistics department for undergraduate students who want to explore English language teaching in the future. My main areas of interest are writing, grammar, and extra-curricular communicative skills such as developing the cultural literacy to successfully write professional documents like cover letters, CVs, and resumes, as well as make and receive professional phone calls. I speak Spanish and French fairly well and a little bit of Mandarin.
