LINGUIST List Jobs Editor

Hello! I became a LINGUIST List crewmember in the summer of 2011. So far being a part of LINGUIST List has been a great experience and I am so excited to see what the future holds. I am an editor for the Job Announcement section and I am also a member of the Endangered Languages Catalog (ELCat) team. I have learned some website programming through the ColdFusion team.

I graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara with a BA in Linguistics in 2011. While I have not narrowed my focus, I am very interested in language documentation and revitalization. I would also like to try my hand at fieldwork and learning more about the role of technology in linguistic research are a few other areas I am eager to explore.

I also have a huge passion for learning anything and everything about Japan, Japanese culture and the Japanese language. I love finding new ways to experience the culture of Japan through music, movie and anime. One day I hope I will be able to visit. Some of my hobbies include cooking, reading, arts & crafts, travel and video games.

Interesting fact: I have a pet rabbit. His name is Marcus and he is super cute. Wanna see him in his LINGUIST List Shirt? Click here!
