I am an instructor in World Languages. I teach undergraduate courses in Spanish at all levels including expository writing, introduction to Spanish linguistics, and introduction to Spanish translation.  For the School of Library and Information Science at USF I occasionally teach specialized upper division undergraduate courses such as Information Resources for Latin America, Spanish for Library and Information Science Professionals.  

In December 2008 I completed the Ph.D. in Romance Linguistics at the University of Florida.  My dissertation, The persistence of the Latin accent in the nominal system of Castilian, Catalan, and Portuguese, applies optimality theory to diachronic linguistics.

The web sites I have developed reflect my desire to support in-class instruction with web-based activities as well as to provide bibliographic guideposts to the internet for information about language and literature (Spanish in particular) as well as Spanish language directories and search engines in order to better serve the Spanish-speaking library user.
