Thomas R. Sawallis

Visiting Scholar in New College, University of Alabama

I finished a Maîtrise des sciences du langage at the Université Stendhal in Grenoble, France (since absorbed into U. Grenoble-Alpes), and then returned to do the Ph.D. at UF, on the topic of speech perception by bilinguals. I taught at Florida Gulf Coast U and Central Michigan U before going to U of Alabama in 2004. I kept contact with my French colleagues, and eventually got involved with Louis-Jean Boë's work on evolution of speech. I have temporarily stepped away from teaching for family reasons.
