Harim KwonThis Spring, Harim Kwon joins GMU as Assistant Professor of Linguistics. She is broadly interested in the nature of the cognitive representations of human speech sounds and the relationship of these representations to their physical aspects. Her research tests phonologically motivated hypotheses, typically employing psycholinguistic and perceptual experimentation use empirical data to study the consequences of speaker-listeners’ linguistic experiences for their phonological (cognitive) knowledge, and their perception and production of speech. She completed her PhD in Linguistics at the University of Michigan. Before joining Mason, she was a postdoctoral research fellow at Université Paris Diderot -- Paris 7, laboratoire CLILLAC-ARP.
