I am a graduate student studying ethnolinguistics in the Anthropology Department of Université de Montréal. My current work is on the Yanesha endangered language of the southcentral Peruvian Amazon. My thesis focuses on the factors leading to the disappearance of the Yanesha language and women's sacred songs. I have recently been accepted to work as a field linguist on an expedition to Paraguay with the National Geographic's Enduring Voices Project. http://www.nationalgeographic.com/mission/enduringvoices/
I am also a singer and musician and play in a experimental project called "Banana and the Flying Colors" as well as a freak-folk band called "Feast of Spirits" in Montreal, Canada.
