I am currently an Assistant Professor (Universitair Docent) at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL). In addition to conducting research on processes of linguistic and social differentiation in urban Norway, I also teach in several multidisciplinary BA programs, including International Studies and Urban Studies at Leiden University, Campus The Hague.
In summer 2021, I completed my PhD in Anthropology and Linguistics at the University of Chicago. While I was a graduate student, I co-coordinated the Semiotics Workshop, co-organized the 18th Annual Michicagoan Graduate Student Conference in Linguistic Anthropology, managed the Linguistic Anthropology Lab, and was an active member of the Anthropology Students Association.
My publications are listed on my Research Projects page.
I am grateful for research support from the Wenner-Gren Foundation, the American-Scandinavian Foundation, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington, the National Science Foundation, and the U.S.-Norway Fulbright Foundation.
