News: I will be presenting at the Berkeley Linguistic Society on February 7-8


I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Kansas, where I work with Allard Jongman in the KU Phonetics and Psycholinguistics Laboratory (KUPPL) on acoustic modeling and speech perception, and with Michael Vitevitch in the Department of Psychology on complex systems in speech. The broad aim of my work is to move away from the sound inventory perspective on the study of speech systems, toward an approach where acoustic and articulatory relations are fundamentally tied to the higher-order linguistic units they serve to distinguish in communication. My dissertation uses English as a test case for the development of this approach, but my interests span many other languages, particularly in India, where I did my Masters (at JNU in New Delhi and at EFLU in Hyderabad) and worked on several languages, including Assamese, Bodo, Garo, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Rabha, and Telugu.
