I am a multilingual and multicultural applied linguist with expertise in Language Education, Testing, Assessment, and Program Evaluation. I currently work at the Center for Educational Effectiveness at University of California, Davis as an Analytics and Assessment Specialist. Previously, I was an Evaluation Specialist at the Language Testing Unit of the Foreign Service Institute (FSI), US Department of State. My main research interests include: foreign, second, and heritage language test design, test use validation, and research design and methods. I received my Ph.D. in linguistics from Georgetown University in 2018.
