Title: Professor
College: Humanities
School / Department: Linguistics
Mentoring Philosophy:

I am a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Utah. My research focuses on a variety of phenomena related to the acquisition of the phonology of a new language by adult learners, specifically the development of phoneme inventories and phonolexical structure. My research typically involves experimental investigations of the perception of new sounds and words, and the influence of various types of linguistic experience on adult phonological development.

I currently serve as the Editor-in-Chief of Applied Psycholinguistics, and on the editorial boards of Second Language Research, Phonetica, and Journal of Second Language Pronunciation.
