I am a linguist and sociologist broadly interested in everyday social interaction, the accountability of language practices, and the promises and perils of digitality in a hyper-connected world.
From how human communication adapts to new interaction media to the way people leverage opportunistic recordings of talk and other conduct to legitimate political action, my research explores spontaneous interaction and, in particular, conversation as a site and a tool for social practice.
I am currently a PhD Candidate in sociology at UCLA.
Between 2014 and 2016, I worked as an adjunct lecturer for the Department of Humanities at PUCP. Drawing from conversation analysis, sociocultural linguistics and (critical) discourse analysis, I developed and taught courses that explored language in social context.
