Welcome! I’m an Assistant Professor in the Linguistics Program at Boston University. I direct the Phonetics, Acquisition & Multilingualism Lab (PAMLab), and am also affiliated with the BU Center for the Study of Asia and the new Center for Research in Sensory Communications and Neural Technology.
My research is concerned with how linguistic experience influences phonological knowledge throughout life. I approach this question primarily by examining the processing, representation, and development of speech sounds in the context of second language learning, multilingualism, and language contact. As such, my work is strongly cross-linguistic in nature, and I use a variety of experimental methods to investigate the ways in which speech production and perception continue to develop in adulthood through varied experiences with sounds in multiple languages.
