I am a Research Scientist at Altus Assessments, and have the honor of being a part of the Altus research team! Altus promotes diversity in higher education, empowering institutions to look beyond book smarts and also take into account non-cognitive competencies such as empathy and collaborativeness when making key academic decisions. At Altus, I research assessment tools, equity in admissions, and I work with faculty and staff in higher education to learn from and improve the admissions process.
I have obtained my PhD in Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2020. Here's a link to a recording of my dissertation defense: https://osf.io/xbruf/
Dissertation available online @ UMass ScholarWorks and OSF
