(M.S. and Ph.D., Georgetown University), Assistant Professor of Spanish and Director of the Lower-Division Spanish Language Program, Department of World Languages and Cultures, investigates how individuals acquire second or foreign language sound systems with a particular focus on Spanish as a foreign language. His research takes a longitudinal approach to pronunciation development, considering how a range of linguistic (e.g., L1 transfer) and psycho-social factors (e.g., motivation) shape individuals’ pronunciation over time as well as their perception of the acquisition process itself.
