Sara Goico received her B.A. in linguistic anthropology, American Sign Language, and Spanish from the University of Rochester in 2009. Her research interests focus on inclusion education for the deaf, interactional studies in classrooms, language socialization, and homesigners. In 2010 Sara conducted nine months of pre-dissertation fieldwork in Iquitos, Peru under the auspices of a Fulbright grant. Her M.A. thesis, titled "A Study of Talk-in-Interaction between a Deaf and Hearing Student in an Inclusion Classroom in Iquitos, Peru," utilizes this fieldwork in order to analyze an interaction between a deaf homesigner and her hearing classmate in an inclusion classroom.

Sara is currently in Iquitos conducting her dissertation fieldwork. Support for her fieldwork comes from NSF, the Center for Academic Research & Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA), and the UCSD Anthropology Department (Project Bucks). Sara is a fellow of CARTA and collaborates with the research group Communication, Culture, and Diversity at Örebro University in Örebro, Sweden. She also co-founded the Sign Language Reading Group in 2010 and founded the Anthropology Graduate Student Association in 2011 at the University of California, San Diego.
