I'm a linguist interested in human speech. Using experimental and computational methods, I research speech perception and production to better understand the mechanisms by which humans produce and understand spoken language.
I'm especially interested in questions of sociophonetics, phonological representation, and language variation and change. I'm a proud member of the UC Berkeley Phon Lab and the Sociolinguistics Lab at Berkeley (SLaB), as well as former member of the NCSU Phonetics Lab. I'm also a Domain Consultant at UC Berkeley Research IT where I connect researchers to high-performance computing solutions.
