Jane Hacking is one of L2TReC's Co-Directors. She holds a PhD in Slavic Linguistics from the University of Toronto and is an Associate Professor of Russian. Her current research interests are primarily in the area of L2 phonology. "I am working on a project exploring the differences between how native Russian speakers and advanced learners of Russian produce Russian consonants. The other research project currently underway is with Dr. Rachel Hayes-Harb in the Department of Linguistics. We are investigating the acquisition of lexical stress in Russian by English speakers. I am also participating in the larger L2TReC effort to create a digital corpus of L2 learner language."
