aphl_2015-1024x466My name is Yoichi Mukai, and I am a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta. I received an MA in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies from Carleton University, a BA in Community Policy Studies from Aichi Gakusen University, and a post-graduate certificate in TESL from Algonquin College. I have taught Japanese at Carleton University, Université du Québec en Outaouais, etc.

My research interests lie in phonetics, psycholinguistics, and second language speech. I am currently investigating what pupillometry, measured during a lexical decision task, can contribute to the advancement of lexical processing research. More specifically, employing both visual and auditory modalities, I am examining the time-course of the processing of pseudo complex words (Opaque words: e.g., corner), as compared to transparent complex words (Transparent words: e.g., cleaner) and monomorphemic words with an embedded stem (Form words: e.g., turnip). I am under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin V. Tucker and Dr. Juhani Järvikivi.
