I hold a B.A. in French, a B.S. in Linguistics, and minors in English and Political Science from Truman State University (2021). During my undergraduate program, I spent the Spring 2019 semester studying at l'Université Catholique de l'Ouest in Angers, France. I received my MA in French Linguistics from IU in Spring 2023. I am currently researching sociophonetic variation in Laurentian French (otherwise known as Canadian or Quebec French). Specifically, I am looking at how dialectal trait variation in Québécois music may be influenced by an artist's genre as well as other sociolinguistic factors. I additionally am working on projects that explore the link between intelligibility and attitudes in varieties of French, rhotic variation in Haitian Creole, and the realization of the palatal lateral phoneme in varieties of Occitan.
