I am a Language Instructor and Spanish PhD student with a concentration on Hispanic Linguistics at Temple University (Philadelphia, USA). My current research interests include second language development and language convergence. I hold a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics from The Pontifical Xavierian University (Colombia), a graduate degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from the University of Salamanca (Spain), and a B.A. in Modern Languages from the University of Quindío (Colombia). Before joining Temple, I worked at Bates College (Maine, USA) as a Language Associate; and at ECCI University and Los Libertadores University (Bogotá, Colombia) as a professor.
