Graduate Student in German
I am a Ph.D. student in German Linguistics. I was also an undergraduate at UC Davis with majors in German, English, and Linguistics. I felt a strong connection to the faculty and campus, which lead me to continue my higher education at UC Davis. My primary focus is on the use of games (analog or digital) in second language learning classrooms and its improvement of the student learning experience.
