Before becoming a full-time linguist, I majored in psychology (with a focus on developmental psychology and psycholinguistics) and French language and literature. I have also worked extensively as a language teacher and translator. This background has influenced me to fully embrace experimental approaches in the fields of phonetics and phonology.
Having lived in five different countries (and counting) has opened my eyes to the beauty of language diversity, and sparked my interest in doing phonological typology.
My research explores the ways in which phonetic and prosodic phenomena both interact with and bring about phonological change. All the work that I do is informed by insights from linguistic typology, psycholinguistics and from findings from studies of large language corpora.
