My research focuses on L2 & L3 acquisition, experimental phonetics and phonology. In particular, I am interested in L1 and L2 influences on Spanish phoneme perception and production. I am also interested in experimental research methods and quantitative analysis.

Lately, I’ve been working on Spanish vowel perception and production by Korean learners.
