I am a linguist trained in phonetics/phonology and language variation and change. My research centers around i. Prosody (Intonation, Lengthening, Intensity), ii. Segmental Phonetics (Vowels and Consonants), and iii. Language variation and change. Besides these you may find more peripheral but equally beloved research interests including research on: iv. Bivariational Speech & Language Pathology and v. Computational analysis of language (stylistics and lexicography) (for the software I developed, visit this page).
