About Me

Hello! My name is Kelly Kendro, and I am a graduate student in linguistics at the University of Utah, advised by Scott Jarvis.

My primary research interests lie in multilingualism and psycholinguistics, specifically executive functioning and cross-linguistic influence in understudied multilingual populations (including heritage speakers and language learners) during the processes of language acquisition and attrition. I am also interested in internet-mediated language interactions and sociolinguistic variation, broadly defined.
