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. I investigate how typical and atypical populations perceive and produce native and nonnative speech sounds and how speech acquisition is affected by linguistic, biological, cognitive, and other factors. My goal is to update the current theories of speech acquisition and facilitate the learning of a nonnative language. I also aim to develop diagnostic tools of language and cognitive impairments using auditory and acoustic analysis, aiding the therapy of these diseases.
