School of Languages and Cultures/SC
Daniel Olson is an Assistant Professor of Spanish and Linguistics in the School of Languages and Cultures. He received his Ph.D. and M.A. in Hispanic Linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin, and a B.A. in International Studies from the University of Dayton.
Daniel's research focuses on phonetics and phonology, particularly in bilingual populations, from an experimental perspective. His previous work has examined the phonetic patterns associated with language switching in Spanish-English bilinguals. Most recently, adding to a growing field of research surrounding the nature of bilingual language storage, he has investigated the the flexible nature of the cognitive mechanisms that allow for language separation and language switching at both the phonetic and lexical levels.
