Research Themes: 

Language, Sustainability and Transnationalism

I received a B.A. in International Studies and Modern Languages and a Masters in Linguistics from Laval University. In 2017, I completed my PhD in the Department of Linguistics at New York University, with a research project that investigated the emerging variety of Portuguese spoken in São Tomé and Príncipe. Before joining UBC, I was a researcher in the Department of Romance Studies and Classics at Stockholm University with a postdoctoral fellowship from the Swedish Wenner-Gren Foundations.

I am an anthropologically oriented sociolinguist, and I tend to enjoy the blurred space between these two fields.

Research interests: Language ideologies, Language contact, Language variation and change, Language and national identity, Migration and diaspora, Language, race, and ethnicity
