Dr. Victor Kharlamov is an Assistant Professor of Linguistics in the Department of Languages, Linguistics and Comparative Literature. He has a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Ottawa, Canada. His primary area of expertise is experimental linguistics, including acoustic and articulatory phonetics, laboratory phonology and psycholinguistics. His current research deals with the phonetics-phonology interface, such as the relationship between phonological and phonetic voicing. He also works on investigating the roles of L1 phonology, orthographic knowledge and sub-phonemic detail in the production and perception of speech as well as on documenting the phonetic system of Southern Ute, a Native American language spoken in the Four Corners area of Colorado. At FAU, Dr. Kharlamov directs a newly created experimental linguistics lab and teaches introductory linguistics courses as well as courses/seminars in phonetics, phonology and psycholinguistics.
