I am a trained-linguist and sociologist broadly interested in everyday social interaction, communication technologies, and the accountability of using language in an increasingly digitally-mediated and hyper-connected world. My research focuses on conversation: From how its internal structures shape everyday social realities to the way its recordings inform professional practice and afford new forms of political action.
Currently, I am a PhD Candidate in sociology at UCLA. In my dissertation, I explore some of the issues above taking as a study case a grand corruption scandal in Peru which was brought to light by the leak of 60,000 police wiretaps to the media.
Between 2014 and 2016, I worked as an adjunct lecturer for the Department of Humanities at PUCP. Drawing on conversation analysis, sociocultural linguistics and (critical) discourse analysis, I developed and taught courses that explored language in social context.
