Madeline Shellgren is a fifth year doctoral student in Linguistics at Michigan State University. Her research interests lie primarily in linguistics, though she is also invested in the scholarship of teaching. Madeline studies the intersection of personality and sociolinguistic perception and production, as well as the complexities of impression formation. With respect to teaching, she has taught several Linguistics courses at MSU, as well as English and Communication courses at Davenport University. If she is not in the classroom, she is either coaching for MSU’s Varsity Rowing Program, helping train MSU’s medical students as a Simulated Patient, or working as a linguistic consultant.
