Research interests

My research interests are in linguistics and phonetics, including speech production and perception, prosody, phonology, and some areas of computational linguistics. I am currently focusing on Exemplar Theory and Information Theory as conceptual and computational frameworks for research in speech production, perception and acquisition.

I have also worked on multilingual text-to-speech synthesis, with an emphasis on prosodic models, morphological analysis, grapheme-to-phoneme conversion, syllabification, and the design of acoustic unit inventories.

Further research has included coarticulatory effects (e.g., on the formant structure of vowels and voicing profiles of consonants in several languages), and I have become increasingly interested in speech technology for language learning.
