Biography

I am a Lecturer (=Assistant Professor) of Russian at University College London, UK. Before that, I taught phonetics and phonology and bilingualism at Queen Mary University and the University of Kent. In the U.S., I served as an Assistant Professor at the Defense Language Institute and coordinated and taught language programs at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, Concordia College, and the University of Pittsburgh.

Research Summary
My research concerns the cognitive underpinnings of second language acquisition – in particular, individual differences in the acquisition of L2 speech. I am also interested in phonaesthetics, the aesthetic pleasure we derive from listening to the sounds of foreign languages.
Teaching Summary
A large part of my career has been dedicated to teaching Russian in a variety of contexts – from customized language consulting for the government personnel to intensive immersion programs for military linguists.
