My main academic interests are in usage-based models of language. Lab Phonetics, Natural Language Processing, Language Modeling and Data Mining are on my diet on a daily basis. As of Fall, 2015, I started both the PhD in Spanish and the Human Language Technology MS in the Linguistics Department. I'm currently teaching Spanish for the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and will be working for IBM during the Summer doing linguistic analyses.
Things I enjoy in my personal time are: dancing, reading, traveling, spending time with my family, writing and practicing Krav Maga. I also enjoy teaching languages.
