Research Interests: Phonology, Morphology, Computational Linguistics

I'm interested primarily in language processing, cognitive science, and the phonology-morphology interface, though I do tend to dabble. Recent work has included a paper on how elements of sign language prosody correlate with the gender and age of the signer; my most current research involves the perception of vowels in accented speech. I received my B.A. with honors from Swarthmore College, where I worked on reduplication in the Munda language family and the verbal morphology of Navajo. Other academic and non-academic interests include machine learning, constructed languages, and scuba diving (which doesn't lend itself to linguistic research; fish aren't the best conversationalists).
