    Title: Assistant Professor
    Office: 1712 University Hall Phone: 3129960925
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    I investigate adult language acquisition of phonetics and phonology and experimental phonology, which is informed by data from speech production and speech perception. My primary focus is currently third language acquisition, specifically linguistic transfer between the systems of a multilingual.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 9

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Students should minimally have completed a basic linguistics course (in Spanish or another language). Desired (but not required) skills include knowledge of SPSS (statistical software) and proficiency in Spanish or Portuguese.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    You will be expected to work in the Multilingual Phonology Lab for approximately 9 hours a week. We will start by orienting you to the lab and its projects and using the different equipment. Then, you will join an ongoing project. You will help with experimental design, collection and analysis of speech production and perception data. We will train you to do these things. Finally, you will write your own paper about your work on the project and we will help you present it at a student conference.
