I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Women's Health Research and an honorary fellow in the Department of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am currently working on an NIH-funded project to examine the structures of interaction in scientific peer review meetings. In the past I have taught for the programs in Anthropology and Linguistics at the Metropolitan State University of Denver and the Departments of Linguistics and Women and Gender Studies at the University of Colorado. I completed my Ph.D. in the University of Colorado's department of Linguistics, where I was involved with the program in Culture, Language, and Social Practice and the Graduate Teacher Program.
My research and teaching interests focus on the examination of talk in everyday and institutional settings using the framework of Conversation Analysis, and in sociolinguistic analyses of language, identity, and ideology within the United States.
