About Agustina Carando

I am a native of city of Córdoba, Argentina. I attended Juan Zorrilla de San Martin primary and secondary schools, and the British School of Córdoba since I was eight years old.

In the fall of 2001, I moved to the United States to attend William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ, where I gained my Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. Upon my graduation, I was accepted to the Linguistics Program at the Graduate Center, CUNY, and received my Ph.D. in 2015. My work there and elsewhere can be found here.

I have volunteered in community organizations, such as the Immigrants Assistance Center, serving on its Board of Directors during my time in Massachusetts.

Outside of academia, I have been an avid learner and performer of Odissi Dance, one of the eight classical dance forms of India, from the state of Orissa. I enjoy cooking and eating Indian, Korean, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean cuisines with my friends, my husband J.T. Ghim and our daughter Nala.
