Welcome! I currently work as a tenure-track Full-Time Faculty in Linguistics at the Department of Languages and Literature, University of Nicosia, Cyprus.
My research interests focus mainly on phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics, and speech-language pathology. Specifically, I investigate how native and nonnative speech is developed in typical and atypical populations by taking into consideration inner cognitive mechanisms that enable the representation of speech categories in the brain. I also focus on how speech categorization and speech signals are affected by linguistic, biological, cognitive, and other factors.
