Welcome! I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA primarily interested in phonology, its relationship with morphology and phonetics, and models of phonological learning. I often address phonological questions using corpus data, computational and statistical modeling, and experimental methods.
Current and recent projects:
- models for the representation and learning of idiosyncratic morpheme propensities in variable phonological processes
- opposite cooccurrence restrictions across non/derived environments in Malagasy and their implications for domain generality bias
- lookahead in phonological process interactions and their implications for Parallel OT and Harmonic Serialism
- experiments testing the learnability of nonlocal processes relative to local processes
- the relationship between sonority and glottal vibration
With Jeff Adler, I gave a talk at NELS47 and a poster at AMP2016, titled Irreducible parallelism in phonological process interactions.

I've uploaded a second draft of the paper A case for parallelism: reduplication-repair interaction in Maragoli. pdf
