Ph.D., Université de Montréal, 2014

I received my PhD from the University of Montreal (Canada) in 2014. Before joining the University of Washington, I taught at the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi (Canada) and at the University of Basel (Switzerland).

My area of specialization is sociolinguistics with a focus on language contact. My research interests also include language variation and change, and Spanish in North America. In my most recent work I have investigated how contact between Spanish and Quechua reshapes the expression of possession in Andean Spanish, as well as its pronominal system. Currently, I am working on the variation and alternation of second-person verbal forms in Chilean Spanish, both in an oral corpus from Santiago and a chat-based corpus.
