Ryosuke Hattori

My name is Ryosuke Hattori. I am from Hiroshima, Japan. Upon graduation from my high school, I went to Canada for studying English for 10 months, before going to New Zealand for a 1 year working holiday (I worked as a housekeeper; see the picture). During this time in the foreign countries, I met people from all over the world, and found that there are many cross-linguistic similarities among different languages they speak. It is this experience that made me interested in human language and led me to start my career as a researcher in linguistics.

I received my M.A. in linguistics from the University of Tokyo in 2012. I have been working on a cross-linguistic analysis of comparatives in Japanese, English and Chinese. I am willing to work more on comparative syntax and its interfaces with other fields at UConn.
