Guilherme D. GarciaI am professeur adjoint of phonology (US equivalent: Assistant Professor) in the Département de langues, linguistique et traduction at Université Laval, in Québec City. I am also associate editor at Second Language Research, member of the Centre for Research on Brain, Language, and Music (CRBLM), and member of the Centre de recherche interuniversitaire sur les humanités numériques (CRIHN). Before joining Université Laval, I was assistant professor in the USA and lecturer in the UK.

I have a PhD in linguistics from McGill University, where I also completed the Interdisciplinary Language Acquisition Program (LAP), which focuses on the scientific exploration of language acquisition from different perspectives (Communication Sciences and Disorders, Education, Linguistics, and Psychology). My PhD supervisor was Heather Goad—you can see my academic tree here.

My research interests are phonology, (second) language Acquisition, and quantitative data analysis. I’m especially interested in using data analysis to uncover patterns that help us better assess representational and theoretical assumptions in phonology. I’m currently working on projects that involve (lexical) stress, (syllable) weight, and second language acquisition. I’m also working on a Talian corpus with Natália B. Guzzo, and on an R package for phonological analysis called Fonology. For more information on my research projects, click here.

Given my research interests, if you’d like to pursue a PhD in linguistics at Université Laval under my supervision, please visit this page. For MAs, visit this page.
