Amber Lubera, Graduate Research Associate, 2019-Present

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student  (ABD) in the Department of Linguistics. I am originally from Las Vegas, Nevada. I received my BA in English (with a focus in linguistics) from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2016. I received my MA in Linguistics and a certificate in Computational Social Sciences from UArizona in 2020. My research interests include factors that impact second language learning,  the effects of implicit vs. explicit instruction, acquisition of complex morphophonology, and the effect of linguistic education on second language learning. I am also passionate about science literacy and community engagement. Additionally, I work with the Iranian Linguistics Group here at UArizona as one of the resident phonologists. I have done extensive work documenting the sound and stress system of Iron Ossetian and contributed to the documentation of Pashto, Balochi, and Persian.
