I am a PhD student of Linguistics (4th year) at Stony Brook University.
I received my Masters in TESOL from TeachersCollege, Columbia University and have taught English for more than nine years, in Japan, the US and Canada. I have also taught a Structure of English class to TESOL graduate students.
My main interests in Linguistics are Phonology, Phonetics, Second Language Phonology/Prosody, and Pragmatics.
I am currently working on how metathesis can be analyzed in Harmonic Serialism and phonetic drift effect on late L2 learners. I am also involved in NSF funded interdisciplinary research project investigating International Teaching Assistants’ communication with native speakers.
