Summary of current work  

In our current research, my collaborators and I approach a single phenomenon with three methods in parallel: (i) data analysis in the classical tradition of generative grammar, using rules and constraints; (ii) experimentation, to assess productivity and generality of phonological knowledge, (iii) modeling: machine-implemented algorithms, incorporating elements of phonological theory, learn the grammar through examination of a data corpus. The idea is to study not just the data pattern of the language, but to determine more precisely what the native speaker knows and demonstrate through modeling how she might come to know it. These goals have always been central to generative linguistics; advances in both theory and technology now help us address them more directly.

Here is a brief blurb on my work in (poetric) metrics.
