Cynthia’s research interests lie at the intersection of history of the Spanish language, sociolinguistics, and multilingualism. Specially, she hopes to examine the effect of dialect contact on indigenous people from Latin America living in California. By illuminating the interaction between a no-native Spanish speaker with a Spanish-English speaker, she hopes to contribute to the importance of multiculturalism in the Unites States.
