Before becoming a full-time linguist, I majored in psychology (with a focus on developmental psychology and psycholinguistics) and French language and literature. Those experiences led me to embrace experimental approaches in the fields of phonetics and phonology.
Having lived in five different countries has strengthened my commitment to the study of languistic diversity, and sparked my interest in doing phonological typology. I have also worked extensively as a language teacher and translator.
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.
