About Me

Hello! I am currently a PhD candidate in the Cornell Linguistics Department. 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.

At Cornell I'm affiliated with the Phonetics Lab, the Language Documentation Lab, and the Southeast Asia Program.


I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in May 2012, with a B.A. in Linguistics, Psychology, and Spanish Literature.
