About me:

I am a non-Indigenous linguist living and working in the traditional and unceded territories of the hənq̓ə̓minə̓m̓-speaking peoples. I was born and raised in Mohkinsstsis (Calgary, Alberta) and I am the granddaughter of Scottish and British immigrants. I am a proud alumnus of the University of Calgary (BA Honours, 2003; MA 2005) and the University of British Columbia (PhD, 2013), and a former postdoctoral fellow at the University of Victoria (SSHRC 2014-16; Banting 2016-18). My research is centered around Indigenous language documentation, revitalization, and analysis, and I have long-standing collaborative relationships with members of the Siksika and Kainai Nations. In addition to my position at the University of Calgary, I am a Lecturer at Simon Fraser University, and an Adjunct Professor at the University of British Columbia.
