As teaching faculty, my primary responsibility is the instruction of undergraduate courses in Psychology. Currently, I teach all sections of PSYC 302 (Infancy) and one section of PSYC 102 (Introduction to Psychology).
In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I also conduct research with young infants. My work is primarily centred on the acquisition and development of speech perception throughout the lifespan. I use eyetracking to examine not only auditory speech perception, but especially how the visual and tactile senses contribute to the development of the speech percept in infancy.
I received my Master’s degree in Experimental Linguistics in 2012 at the University of Alberta, where I worked in the Alberta Phonetics Laboratory and the Centre for Comparative Psycholinguistics with Dr. Benjamin Tucker. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Romance Linguistics and Education from Duke University in 2009.
