I’m interested in phonetics, phonology, Language acquisition, and sociolinguistics.
In particular, I’m interested in the sociophonetics of queer speakers, more specifically, what phonetic differences can be perceived between sexualities in different languages and whether or not they are language specific.
My current research focuses on studying the differences in the speech of Queer and Heterosexual Spanish monolingual speakers, and I plan on expanding that research to study bilingual speakers to determine whether English has an influence on the phonetic cues associated with Queer Spanish.
