Hello! I’m a doctoral candidate (ABD) in linguistics at the CUNY Graduate Center. My research interests are in laboratory phonology, prosody, working-memory capacity (WPC), speech planning  and Tagalog (a Philippine language).

I’m also an adjunct instructor at LaGuardia Community College, where I first started teaching introductory linguistics courses and academic ESL in the Education & Language Acquisition Department in Fall 2009. I’m currently on hiatus to finish my dissertation work.

Aside from my academic work, I enjoy being outdoors (a few places are in the banner pictures) and experiencing life in NYC with my loquacious 6 and 3 year old daughters.

    Hello Professor,

    My name is Jonathan Gomes and I was a former student of your ELL 101 class. I honestly cannot remember when, perhaps 3 years ago but I’m just writing to tell you briefly that your class has helped me a lot in recent times. I was a liberal arts student taking ASL as electives and I’m currently studying upstate in Rochester for my B.A. degree in American Sign Language Interpretation. I’m currently taking linguistics of ASL and I must say that your class provided a really solid foundation for me. Linguistics of ASL is also really fascinating. So I just wanted to thank you.
