PhD candidate, UCLA Department of Linguistics
I am a fifth year linguistics graduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles and a member of
the UCLA Phonetics Lab and the UCLA Language Acquisition Lab.
My primary research interests lie in theoretical and experimental phonology, prosody, and fieldwork.
I am particularly interested in gaining a better understanding of phonological knowledge through a wide variety of experiments, including phonetic, phonological, and psycholinguistic experiments.
I am currently writing my dissertation on loanword accentuation in Japanese, which involves corpus analysis, computational modeling and loanword adaptation experiments.
- I'll be presenting a talk at the 95th annual meeting of Linguistic Society of America. The title is "A probabilistic account of accentuation across Japanese lexical strata"
