Paloma Pinillos Chávez is a PhD candidate in Hispanic Linguistics. She is from Lima, Peru, where she studied her BA and MA in Linguistics. She studied in Spain for two years and got her MA in Phonetics and Phonology. Her primary research interest is the production and perception of English-Accented Spanish in the US. She studies the impact of English-Accented Spanish in the relationship between Latino patients and non-native Spanish speaking health professionals. Her work analyzes which phonetic and phonological cues of Spanish are perceived as non-native by Latino patients and how the perception of a non-native accent develops different levels of reliability with the health professional. Other academic interest include second language learning, technology-enhanced learning, and performance pedagogy within the Latinx community.
