We would happy to welcome a new member of staff to our department! Dr. Yoonsang Song’s research explores the syntactic and morphological representation of language, with a particular focus on how language is processed by second language learners and bilingual speakers. He uses various experimental methods including electroencephalography (EEG). Prior to joining HKU, he worked at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (2017-2019) as Research Assistant Professor, and at HKU (2016-2017) as Visiting Assistant Professor. He received his Ph.D. in linguistics from Georgetown University, and his B.A. in Business Administration from Seoul National University.
At HKU, he plans to build an EEG lab for his second language and bilingual research in various domains of language through collaboration with other faculty members in linguistics. Welcome, Dr. Song!
