Nick Van Handel

About Me

Welcome! My name is Nick Van Handel. I'm a fourth year Ph.D. student in Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz. My research interests lie primarily in psycholinguistics, phonetics, and phonology.

I am currently working on the syntax-prosody interface in Italian under the guidance of Junko Ito. I am also investigating sources of similarity-based interference during subject retrieval with Netta Ben-Meir and Matt Wagers. Before coming to Santa Cruz, I worked as a research assistant in Kristin Van Engen's lab at Washington University.

I'm also a member of several of our department's reading groups: s/lab, Phlunch, and LIP.
