A phonetician by training, my research interest is in speech prosody. I study the perception and production of tone and intonation across languages and populations to better understand its linguistic, affective, and social meanings. My background in Hispanic linguistics, acoustics, laboratory phonology, and speech therapy inform my experimental work. I received my Ph.D. from Indiana University, Bloomington. I also hold an M.A. in Speech and Hearing from the same university and a post-doc from University College London. My articles have been published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Applied Psycholinguistics, Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, Journal of Phonetics, Language and Speech, and Studies in Second Language Acquisition. I am currently an Assistant Professor at University of Pittsburgh.
