About me

Hello! I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the SMAC lab at UW-Madison. My main interest is the phonetics-phonology interface, especially the path from representations to motor realization. My first love is tone languages of all shapes and sizes, but I also have a pet interest in Finno-Ugric languages. In my work, I combine different experimental approaches (acoustic, articulatory, corpus) with phonological analysis to produce a coherent picture of phonological representation.


I completed my PhD at Cornell University in 2018 under the guidance of Draga Zec. My dissertation is titled "Towards an articulatory model of tone: a cross-linguistic investigation".
