PhD candidate in Linguistics at the University of Alberta
I am currently studying Linguistics at University of Alberta. I received a MA in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies from Carleton University, BA in Community Policy Studies from Aichi Gakusen University, and post-graduate certificate in TESL from Algonquin College. I taught Japanese at Carleton University, Université du Québec en Outaouais, etc.
My research interests lie in psycholinguistics, phonetics, and second language speech (e.g., processing, perception, and fluency). I am particularly interested in quantifying accentedness using 'rhythmic' properties of language, as well as examining how disfluency affects listener's prediction for upcoming words.
