I’m a lecturer at Concordia University in Montréal, Québec. My research is on second language acquisition, with a focus on comprehension, cutting across a number of subfields, from phonology up through pragmatics.
My thesis is entitled Comprehension and the Prosodic Transfer Hypothesis. Most of my research before the thesis examined Japanese learners of English, or vice versa, a pairing I’m personally interested in, as a learner of Japanese myself.
Outside of linguistics, I’m interested in Japan and Japanese culture, hiking and getting outside, and reading. Sometimes, I even read books about Japan while hiking.
