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.

I have also been affiliated with the Alna Project and MultiLing at the University of Oslo, and I was a visiting student at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris.

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.
