Sarah Phillips is a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at New York University. As someone who identifies as Blasian and grew up speaking Black English and Korean, code-switching sits at the center of her research. This complex phenomenon of alternating languages during discourse has been widely studied in linguistics, psychology, and neuroscience; but the aim of Sarah's research is to integrate approaches from all three fields to develop a more holistic perspective on the bilingual mind.
