Biography

In 2021, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures (concentration in English Language and Applied Linguistics) from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. During my undergraduate studies, I was a visiting student at the University of Calgary, Canada, funded by the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (Government of Canada).

In 2022, I did a research internship at the Psycholinguistics Laboratory at the Leibniz Centre for General Linguistics in Berlin, Germany.

Research

Areas of Research

Second Language Speech - Pronunciation

As an applied linguist, I am interested in real-world language-related issues. I am broadly interested in second language speech, including how learners acquire and process individual sounds, how individual differences affect the learning process, how listeners react to second language speech, how speaking with a second language accent impacts speakers’ lives, and how pronunciation can be taught and learned more critically and effectively.
