Hello and welcome to my website!

I am a phonetician/ laboratory-phonologist/ psycholinguist/ cognitive-scientist. And a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University where I work in the Prosody and Speech Dynamics Lab.
Prior to this, I received my PhD in Linguistics from UCLA in December 2020.

My research centers on examining how prosodic and intonational patterns influence speech perception and spoken language processing, especially in the perception of speech timing, and the uptake of segmental information. My dissertation explores one domain where these questions are especially interesting.

More broadly, I research speech perception and prosody (production and perception). In another strand of research, I describe phonetic structure and patterns in language, mostly from acoustic data.
