Short Biography:

I am a phonologist with a primary research focus on learning and learnability. My research approaches individual phenomena in phonology from three directions: (a) formal analysis, (b) experimentation accessing learners’ linguistic knowledge, and (c) computational modeling incorporating components of linguistic theory. I have conducted research on cognitive biases in phonological acquisition, learning mechanisms of combining sound units, morphology-phonology interactions, and iconic resources in shaping the sound system of languages. My current research program is mainly to understand the shape of phonological knowledge and demonstrate through simulation how human learners might come to acquire it.
