A (very) little about me
My primary research interests are in phonology. In particular, I am interested in the roles similarity (articulatory, perceptual, and structural) and locality play in shaping phonological systems. I am currently addressing this issue in my dissertation which, among other things, is looking at the relevance and irrelevance of glides in vowel harmony systems.
Additionally, I am interested in the effect that early language exposure has on the phonological systems of heritage language speakers. I have pursued this topic in research focussing on heritage speakers of Mandarin with Charles Chang, Erin Haynes, and Yao Yao.
