Research Interests

I am a PhD student in Concordia University's Department of Education (Applied Linguistics) program in Tiohtiá:ke Tsi/Montreal, Quebec, where I am training to become a sociophonologist. My interest lies in understanding how learners perceive and acquire a second dialect in their second language--specifically, how phonemic categorical perception develops in the mind, and what role gamification might play in improving learner perception. More broadly, my research interests fall under the following categories:

  • Phonology in second language education

  • Categorical perception, learning, and development

  • Dialectal variation and perception in second language acquisition

  • Gamification and its effect on L2 perception

My PhD in Education is being co-supervised by Laura Collins and Walcir Cardoso, with Norman Segalowitz as my final committee member.
