Yukiko Asano received her Ph.D. in Linguistics from Stony Brook University. Before joining the CLIC at Rice University, she taught a variety of courses at universities from undergraduate to graduate level, including introductory to advanced level Japanese courses, general education courses encompassing languages and cultures of East Asia, and linguistics courses for both linguistics and non-linguistics students. Her research interests center around the interaction of the morphological, syntactic, semantic, and phonological interfaces and parametric differences that give rise to cross-linguistic typology. In addition to her work in theoretical linguistics, Dr. Asano is interested in the interactions of language and culture in society.
