My research interests lie within several branches of applied linguistics: second language acquisition, phonetics, phonology, and language teaching methods. I am particularly interested in how phonetics and phonology can inform the teaching of second language pronunciation. One example of the interface between linguistics and language pedagogy involves analyzing the relationship between fluency and measurable phenomena, such as speech rate, pausing, and word boundary features.
