I currently work as an Assistant Professor in Linguistics at the Department of Languages and Literature, University of Nicosia, Cyprus. I am the Director of the University of Nicosia Phonetic Lab.
I was honored with the Cyprus Research Award - Young Researcher 2023 in the field of Humanities and Social Sciences.
I am interested in investigating how typical and atypical populations perceive and produce native and nonnative speech sounds and other language structures. I also examine the extent to which successful speech acquisition is predicted by linguistic, biological, cognitive, and other factors. My ultimate goal is to advance current theories of speech-language acquisition, maximize learning outcomes, and facilitate the diagnosis of speech-language disorders. In my work, I conduct acoustic analysis of speech sounds, employ behavioral, neuropsychological, and psychometric tests, and leverage AI algorithms to predict typical and atypical speech and language patterns.
