I am a young linguist excited about the beauty and dignity of languages across the globe. I work in remote parts of Northern Australia documenting the highly endangered languages MalakMalak and Matngele and in New Mexico for the Acoma people. I believe that the languages of the world hold invaluable treasures to understanding human culture and mind and as such should be documented, treasured, and preserved for generations to come.
I am now affiliated with the University of Oregon as Honorary Research Associate and also work as a Documentary Linguist for The Language Conservancy. At my last position as a postdoc at the University of Chicago I was a member of the Language in Time and Space Research Group.
I also blog about Australian Languages, fieldwork, running, hiking, healthy food and lifestyle.
