I am currently a researcher on the ANR-funded To2No project, based at IKER-CNRS (Irantzu Epelde, coordinator), examining variation and change in allocutive marking in Basque dialects. I'm also a member of the Basque & Beyond research group (Beatriz Fernández, PI).
My recent work on variation in English has been as a collaborator with the Corpus of New York City English (CoNYCE) research group along with Cece Cutler, Michael Newman Beatrice Santorini and Christina Tortora (lead PI). From 2018-2022 I was co-PI on NSF-funded project supporting this work: "Collaborative Research: A Corpus of New York City English: Audio-Aligned and Parsed" (BCS-1630274).
