Personal profile


Loy Lising is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Linguistics at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia and a Fellow with the Higher Education Academy. She is a member of the International Advisory Panel for Migration Linguistics Unit at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. She served as Program Director for the Department of Linguistics’ Master of Crosscultural Communication program at the University of Sydney from 2012 to 2014.

In 2015, she was awarded the Andrew Gonzalez Distinguished Professorial Chair in Linguistics and Language Education by the Linguistic Society of the Philippines.

Loy is a sociolinguist whose research interests lie at the intersection of multilingualism and migration. Employing both ethnographic and corpus approaches, she investigates the enduring consequences of this convergence on key issues such as heritage language maintenance, the evolving variation in language(s) in a society induced by language contact situations between diasporic communities and mainstream society, and the de facto multilingual practices present on the ground in a society that continues to hold the monolingual ideal.

She welcomes postgraduate students interested on the above topics for supervision.
