Hi! I'm a Linguistics PhD student at UC Berkeley.

My research centers on language reclamation, working primarily with archival materials.

I previously worked at the California Language Archive. In my position I focused on increasing the archive's outreach to Indigenous communities and making its website and catalogue more accessible. 

I am collaborating with Robert Geary of the Elem Pomo tribe to develop a community-centered dictionary of Xaitsnue.
