I, that being Marcin Opacki, am an assistant professor (which is the official, but somewhat inaccurate translation of the Polish word "adiunkt") of Linguistics at the University of Warsaw (Faculty of Modern Languages, Institute of English Studies, Section of Linguistics), where I teach Syntax 101, Linguistics 101, Computational Linguistics, and Modern Syntactic Theories.
My field of expertise, and concurrently my research focus, is Formal Syntax and Corpus Linguistics. While I am quite content to study these subjects for their own sake, I am also interested in their application in Psycholinguistics, Language and Communication Analytics, Educational Research, Language Teaching Methodology, and Electronic Media Localization and Translation.
