I earned a Ph.D. in linguistics in 1997 from Harvard University focusing on the historical and synchronic development of mutations within the Celtic languages. At Penn State, I have taught phonology, sociolinguistics and introductory linguistics at Penn State and have worked within the Teaching and Learning with Technology unit at Penn State since 2000.
Research Interests: Celtic languages including Celtic mutations, historical linguistics including historical syntax, phonology-morphology interface.
Current Research Projects
As a member of Teaching and Learning with Technology, my work focuses on accessibility, usability, and effective pedagogy of educational technology including multimedia platforms, Canvas, and other digital tools. I am currently co-chair of the Penn State Accessibility and Information Technology Committee and maintains the Penn State accessibility website.
