Department of Languages and Culture Studies
My research is centered on translation and interpreting and aims to understand the various cognitive, social, technological, and linguistic processes involved in language mediation and intercultural communication.

At several institutions, I have taught courses on Spanish for Healthcare, medical terminology, medical translation and interpreting, and healthcare disparities in U.S. Latino populations.
