My name is Yoichi Mukai, and I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta. I received an MA in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies from Carleton University and a post-graduate certificate in TESL from Algonquin College. I have taught Japanese at Carleton University and Université du Québec en Outaouais. I am under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin V. Tucker and Dr. Juhani Järvikivi.

I study phonetics and psycholinguistics. My research focuses on production and perception of reduced forms of words and the effect of pronunciation and spelling inconsistency in Japanese. Specifically, I investigate the impact of reduced word forms on the effect of pronunciation and spelling inconsistency during the perception of spoken words by measuring the size of pupil dilation over time.
