I’m a second-year grad student in the linguistics department at UCLA.

Broadly, my work deals in theoretical phonology, with particular interest in learning, phonotactics, and the phonology-(morpho)syntax interface. Narrowly, I am interested in the typology to phonological repair processes, the learning and modeling of variable phonological processes, and “upstream” effects of phonological markedness in syntactic concatenation and lexical choice. Methodologically, I make use of whatever tools are needed for the job: right now, this means computational modeling, corpus methods, and lab-based experiments.

I’m advised by Bruce Hayes, Kie Zuraw, and Jesse Harris, and I’m affiliated with the UCLA Phonetics Lab, the UCLA Language Processing Lab, and the Shih Language & Computation (ShLAC) Lab at USC.
