Katsura Aoyama, Ph.D.

Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Speech-Language Pathology
Primary Research Interests: 

My main research areas are language acquisition and psycholinguistics. I have investigated children and adults who speak a variety of languages, including American English, Finnish, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Mavea, and Guinaang Bontok. My main interest is to study how languages differ in phonetic and phonological aspects and how these cross-linguistic differences affect children’s acquisition of their first language as well as the acquisition of a second language (L2).
