I am a PhD candidate of linguistics at McGill University. Broadly, I am interested in speech perception and production, phonetics, second language acquisition and psycholinguistics. My research focuses on linguistic and cognitive mechanisms in speech perception and production, second-language speech learning, and adaptive processes in spoken language. I am particularly concerned with how these processes differ across individuals and how they are integrated to broaden our understanding of linguistic and cognitive mechanisms in speech processing and learning.
Currently, I am working on my PhD dissertation on how listeners overcome challenging listening conditions and what makes some listeners better adapters to variability in both the signal and listening environments.
Previously, I investigated how individual second language learners differ in their developmental trajectories in the acquisition of novel speech sound contrasts longitudinally. I also examined how and to what extent speech perception and production are linked at an individual level using phonetic imitation.
