I am a professor of anthropology at UCLA. My research focuses on youth, language, migration, politics, and identity.  Though my original training is in sociophonetics, I have conducted research among Latina girls involved in gangs, politicians in Town Hall meetings, children in school settings, and young adults playing videogames.
