Teaching

Currently, during the first two quarters of the 2019-2020 academic year at Utrecht University, I am teaching seminars for three courses in total, as detailed below. In the last two quarters, I will be teaching undergraduate courses in the Linguistics and AI programs. I am also contributing to the Linguistics program’s switch to bilingual undergraduate teaching.

  • undergraduate From Language to Linguistics
  • undergraduate Psychology of Language
  • undergraduate Phonetics: the Study of Speech.

At the University of Toronto, I taught undergraduate and graduate courses, including a PhD research seminar on exceptions in phonology, as shown below. I also supervised PhD students (Teaching Assistants, a Research Assistant, and I was on committees for a Generals Paper and for a dissertation).

  • undergraduate Historical Linguistics (syllabus)
  • undergraduate Sound Patterns in Language (syllabus)
  • undergraduate Special Topics: Computational Phonology (syllabus)
  • graduate Phonological Theory (syllabus)
  • graduate Advanced Phonology II (syllabus), a seminar on lexical exceptions in phonology.

At the University of Huddersfield, I taught the four courses below. In addition, I supervised several undergraduate theses, and I also took part in the department’s outreach activities and helped organize Self-Improvement Clinics for the students.

  • Field Linguistics (module leader; syllabus)
  • Phonetics and Phonology (module leader; syllabus)
  • Introduction to Descriptive Linguistics (module tutor; syllabus)
  • Sociolinguistics (module tutor).

At Harvard University, I taught the four courses listed below. In addition, I supervised two independent study projects (presented at the LSA Annual Meeting and the Old World Conference in Phonology).

  • undergraduate Sounds of Language (syllabus)
  • graduate Phonological Theory I (syllabus)
  • graduate Phonological Theory II (syllabus)
  • graduate Advanced Phonology (syllabus), an introduction to computational methods for hidden structure learning (both syntax and phonology).

Finally, during my PhD education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, I gained experience in teaching introductory courses in linguistics:

  • Introduction to Linguistic Theory (instructor; syllabus)
  • People and their Language (teaching assistant).
