I am currently a PhD candidate at Arizona State University in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics and a Teaching Associate in the English Department where I teach courses on composition and linguistics. I am interested in the academic journey of graduate students and teachers realizing the full spectrum of career opportunities upon graduation. I completed a graduate certificate for computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in Spring 2020 which is a primary research interest. Other areas include the nexus of language, globalization, and the internet and professionalization of students during second language teacher education (SLTE) courses. My dissertation focuses on the socialization of these students and their resulting professionalization.
