About Me

My name is Vincent, a PhD student. I received a BA in English and Literary Studies from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria. I moved to the US and received an MA in Linguistics from the University of Delaware. I was in the PhD program there before moving to Calgary to continue my studies with Dr. Darin Flynn.

I am broadly interested in phonological theory and laboratory phonetics. My current focus is on the phonetics phonology interface with tone and the typologies of prosodic systems. I specifically look at tonal and incomplete neutralization, prosody, and speech acoustics. I am also committed to the typology and documentation of endangered and understudied African languages.

Beyond my academic pursuits, I find leisure in watching movies and football (soccer). My favorite team is Chelsea, and I take great pleasure in supporting the team.
