Dissertation: Third Person Reference in Russian and Czech
Lecturer in Russian and Czech language at UCLA
I’ve been at UCLA since 1996. I’ve had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of courses here: mainly Russian and Czech language courses, but also a couple of graduate courses (West Slavic Linguistics and OCS) and independent study courses (Czech theater, privatization in Russia, and other topics). I’ve enjoyed the chance to teach an introductory Czech course as a videoconference with UCSB (with the help of Berkeley alumnus Larry McLellan, who teaches Russian there). My primary research interests are language pedagogy and discourse studies (deixis, definiteness, verbal aspect), focusing on Czech and Russian.
