Senior Lecturer in French, Boston University
I work mainly with students minoring or majoring in French. Some of my specialties include graphic novels, interpretation techniques and writing analytics. I am interested in automatic speech recognition, subtitling techniques, software that develops and refines writing skills, and digital language labs, to promote comprehensible, spontaneous and sustained speech.
