I am a Ph.D. Candidate, sociolinguistic researcher, and Graduate Student Instructor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at UC Berkeley. I graduated with two B.A.s from UC Berkeley in 2018. I am primarily interested in the fields of sociolinguistics and critical sociology. My current research investigates nonbinary gender morphology in Spanish (e.g. latinx, elle ‘they [sg.]’) and other languages and contextualizes the institutional rejection of gender-inclusive language within linguicism, a theoretical framework describing the inseparable nature of linguistic and all other forms of discrimination. I am relatedly the founder of the Gender in Language Project.
