Being an immigrant in Canada, the topics of bilingual speech, the role of minority communities, language attitudes towards minority languages, language transfer, and its maintenance and loss, among others, have always fascinated and inspired me to study linguistics in depth. I received my B.A. from York University with double major in Spanish and Communication Studies. Then, I completed my Masters in Guelph with the specialization in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Currently, I am completing my dissertation that is a continuation of my M.A. project, in which I explore the interplay of social and linguistic factors in the domain of negation in the bilingual Italo-Mexican community, Chipilo, Mexico.
