I am scholar at the University of California Santa Barbara specializing in sociocultural linguistics with a focus on language, sexuality, and religion. I’m also the Director of Professional Development at UCSB’s Graduate Division, where I provide resources and support to graduate students as they navigate the professional world of grad school and beyond.
The driving force behind all of my work is a desire to help people communicate better about complex topics. I believe that when we are equipped with both knowledge and empathy, we can connect across boundaries in meaningful ways.
