Jeffrey Lamontagne‘s main interests lie in sociophonetics and sound change, from perceptual, articulatory and acoustic perspectives. He is completing his M.A. in Linguistics at the University of Ottawa.

Betty Leung is interested in first language attrition, online language processing, and computational linguistics.  She studied Linguistics and Cognitive Science at Simon Fraser University.

Dejan Milacic is interested in syntax, semantics, pragmatics and their interfaces. He majored in Cognitive Science at Carleton University in Ottawa.

Pauline Palma‘s two main interests lie in theoretical morphology and in second language acquisition, with a particular interest in syntax and semantics. She completed her B.A. in Linguistics at UQÀM.
