Matthew John Hadodo recently completed his PhD in sociolinguistics at the University of Pittsburgh focusing on language and identity, and started a postdoctoral position at the University of Bern's Center for the Study of Language and Society. His work encompasses variationist and discursive approaches to how people use language in relation to how they view themselves and others. I mostly focus on the endangered Istanbul Greek dialect, and balance ethnographic fieldwork with sociophonetic approaches to studying language contact and change.
