I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Oregon.

research interests

How is linguistic variation structured within and across social groups? What knowledge do listeners have about how this variation is structured? How do listeners’ previous beliefs and experiences about socio-indexical structure impact speech processing? My research program uses computational and experimental methods to understand the representation and processing of variation. Drawing on sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and corpus phonetics I seek to uncover connections between social structures, language variation, and listener perceptions.
