I am a Ph.D. student in Linguistics. My research interests include understanding how our speech production and speech perception systems constrain linguistic variation, especially as it applies to the larynx. I am also interested in integrating theoretical representations of language with speech. I approach this using a broad variety of tools/methodologies, including theoretical work, experiments, and modeling. Current projects include developing a computational tool to expedite the analysis of pitch and an online perception experiment on the relationship between pitch and perceived duration.
