PhD Candidate in Hispanic Linguistics

Department of Spanish and Portuguese


Ana came to UNM sponsored by the US Air Force to pursue a Hispanic Linguistics degree. Her research interests include childhood language acquisition and bilingualism, language variation and change in Brazilian Portuguese, anthropological and historical linguistics. Although not her primary field of specialty, she is interested in further analysing the Portuguese language to establish correlations between Spanish and Portuguese, which in turn may prove very useful in classroom education.
