I am a phonetician and phonologist currently finishing my Ph.D. at Yale University’s Department of Linguistics and its Phonetics Laboratory. My research primarily concerns the representation of speech sounds in terms of the temporal representation of gestures, and more generally the relationships between tones and segments, language contact, sound change, and anything related to Tibetan.

To these ends, I have used a variety of methods, including field interviews, corpus methods, acoustic phonetics, and, in particular, Electromagnetic Articulography (EMA).
