I am a PhD candidate in Linguistics at the University of Chicago. I’m interested primarily in phonetics & phonology, with particular interests in sociophonetics, coarticulation, sensory disorders, and language variation and change.

Some projects I’m working on include a study of the production and perception of /s/-retraction in American English, a corpus-based approach to understanding longitudinal convergence and variation, and an examination of speech production and perception without somatosensation. Some of my recent work includes an analysis of prosodic effects on sibilant coarticulation, an examination of the perception of vocal characteristics and their acoustic cues in English corpora, and models of noun incorporation and reduplication in Sora (Munda).
