Professor Colin Phillips is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Oxford and a Professorial Fellow at Somerville College. He is the first person to be appointed to the Professorship in Linguistics since his predecessor in the role, Professor Aditi Lahiri CBE, established the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics in 2008. Professor Phillips comes to Oxford from the University of Maryland, where he built an interdisciplinary research programme on the moment-by-moment processes involved in speaking and understanding. In addition to his primary research, Professor Phillips is a passionate evangelist for language science, in which capacity he founded the Maryland Language Science Center, a unique interdisciplinary hub that connected over 200 language scientists from fields as diverse as education and engineering.
