We have two new postdoctoral researchers in our department this year, joining Bronwyn Bjorkman and Nicholas Welch.
Keffyalew Gebregziabher earned his Ph.D. from the University of Calgary in 2013. His research involves the morphosyntax of possessive forms, especially in the Ethio-Semitic languages. He will be working with Elizabeth Cowper here.
Jessamyn Schertz has recently completed a Ph.D. at the University of Arizona, working on speech production and the limits of phonological contrast. She will be working at UTSC with Yoonjung Kang on a SSRHC project entitled “Bilingualism, perceptual drift, and regularization of loadwords”.
Welcome, Keffy and Jessamyn!
