Niko Schwarz

My name is Nikolai Andrés Schwarz. I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the HispanicLanguages and Literature on track 3 (the linguistics track). I received a Bachelor of Arts in Honors Linguistics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver. My research interests primarily lie in phonetics and psycholinguistics, specifically investigating these topics in Caribbean varieties of Spanish that have been underrepresented in the phonetics and psycholinguistic literature. My previous and current work at UBC has focused on speech-processing bilinguals and Spanish speakers in the Speech in Context Lab.
