I recently defended my dissertation, Degrees of Incompleteness in Neutralization: Paradigm Uniformity in a Phonetics with Weighted Constraints (abstract) at the Rutgers University Linguistics Department, and will join the faculty of Texas Tech University as an Assistant Professor of linguistics in the Department of English starting in Fall 2013.
I'm primarily interested in phonology and its interface with phonetics (and morphology), which I investigate in the laboratory. More specific research interests, as well as a description of recent and current projects, are laid out here.
I am a member of the Rutgers Phonetics Laboratory.
A number of scripts and tools for Praat, R, and LaTeX that I've developed are available on the resources page.
My not-infrequent use of "hella", fronted vowels, and complete inability to pronounce [ɔ] all betray my Southern California roots—even though I have lived on the east coast for nearly a decade.
Before coming to Rutgers, I studied linguistics and (linguistic) anthropology at Brandeis University, just outside of Boston.
