I am focused, versatile, and curious. Learning new things is an integral part of my life (this may be why I've been sticking around school for this long.)
I love looking for (and finding!) solutions to problems, and streamlining a workflow or process. I am also a big fan of data-based decisionmaking.
Naturally, being a linguist, I love languages - and I am not scared of code. In my free time, I like to learn new things in R on DataCamp, and dabble in photography.
We are investigating whether an individual's personality traits, which tend to be glossed over frequently in linguistic research, have a measurable influence on language comprehension. The initial data from a multi-modal array of studies (self-paced listening, off-line ratings, and pupillometry) look quite promising! With Dr. Juhani Järvikivi.
I am currently an IPAC Public Service Graduate Intern with Communications at the Alberta Public Service (aka the Government of Alberta), where I help with outreach.
After having completed the certificate in Management of Urban Infrastructures, I am now pursuing the Data Scientist with R Career Track on DataCamp in my free time to hone my data analysis skills.
I am passionate about making cities accessible and pleasant experiences for all. I am a member of the Edmonton Transit System Advisory Board and have recently completed a Certificate in Management of Urban Infrastructures with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne via Coursera.
