Kizzy Fennell, Editor-in-Chief
Manchester Metropolitan University
Kazune Sato, Deputy Editor-In-Chief
University of Cambridge
Kaz (he/him) is an MPhil (by Advanced Study) student in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Cambridge. Whilst his current research interests primarily align with syntax, he is interested in various topics concerned with linguistics such as semantics, phonology, morphology and language typology. His free-time hobbies include writing some Linguistic Olympiad-style puzzles and learning some new languages - and outside of linguistics, he can be found exploring board games, cooking with a pressure cooker and hunting for delicious Asian food!
Baqau Hassan Omotayo, Editorial Designer
Hassan (he/him) is a final-year student at BRAC University, majoring in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching (ELT). With an aptitude for research and analysis, he dives headfirst into the realms of discourse analysis and pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and computer-assisted language learning (CALL). Political discourse analysis has him hooked because he believes it's the key to assessing social issues and power imbalances. In his rare leisure moments, you'll likely find him watching political speeches from around the world and contemplating the intricacies of global affairs. After all, a bit of laughter never hurts when decoding the hidden messages and power imbalances behind every charismatic politician's rhetoric!
Fredi (she/her) is a second year in Linguistics and Japanese at the University of Edinburgh where she has to this day been unsuccessful in finding affordable cappuccino. After sitting in on a lecture on the history of the field in Russia she went and signed up for Linguistics everywhere she could, including Uni :) Her current fields of interests are Kanji etymology and phonetic decoding of languages using Praat! Lately, she has found refuge from the stressful everyday of academia in crocheting, fanfiction, and extensive discussions of social injustice and world politics with her friends.
Sophie Krol, Section Editor (Voices)
Sophie is currently in her second year of Linguistics with French at Newcastle Uni. Her main areas of curiosity are syntactic theory, acquired language disorders and theories of acquisition. She’s told she can’t draw syntax trees all day, so you’ll probably find her planning trips to random countries (that may or may not make it out of the group chat), putting the world to rights, playing the piano or, more recently, trying to knit.
