My main academic interests are in usage-based models of language, Corpus Linguistics. Natural Language Processing, Language Modeling, and Data Mining. As of Fall, 2015, I started both the Ph.D. in Spanish and the Human Language Technology MS at the University of Arizona.
I also like creating languages (conlanging), studying Universal Grammar and linguistic universals as well as reading about language evolution and all biolinguistic-related research.
Things I enjoy in my personal time are dancing, reading, traveling, spending time with my family, writing, Raspberry Pies, and practicing Krav Maga. I also enjoy teaching languages.
