The most recent project, a work in progress, is an interdisciplinary collaboration between ethnobotany and linguistics for the Wixárika language at the New York Botanical Garden, directed by Dr. Alex McAlvay. 

I was also recently invited by anthropologist Dr. Magnus Pharao from the University of Copenhagen to collaborate on a mixed approach project on the history of Southern Uto-Aztecan languages and the development of mythological traditions in Wixárika and Naáyeri.

I have participated in projects of different nature, including language documentation for the Center for the Study of Indigenous Languages of the West (University of Colorado at Boulder), a study on Spatial language and numerical skills for the Language, Cognition and Development Laboratory (University of Colorado at Boulder), and language acquisition in a simultaneous bilingual (University of Colorado at Boulder).

I have interest in collaborating with different disciplines as the experience provides more in-depth perspectives on the phenomenon of language.
