About Me

Hello! I am currently a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Linguistics at Rutgers University. 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. I like to work with "messy" data! Learning to effectively analyze and interpret it, however, is a long process.


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".
