Sarah is a native New Yorker and lifelong resident of Queens. Her primary research focuses on the interplay of language and literature, and she is particularly interested in speech varieties, dialects, and author—created languages in fiction. Her past work has included cultural examinations of the New York accent and syntactical analysis of sci-fi novels. She is also interested in exploring gender and language in Early Modern English texts and 19th novels.

She is a PhD Fellow and Adjunct in the English Department and currently teaches ENG 1100c, Global Lit. and First-Year Writing. In her spare time, she enjoys going to the theatre and baking in her tiny kitchen. She is a vegan, coffee addict, and linguaphile, and lives with a tiny white dog who occupies most of her attention.
