Welcome

me_department_2

I am a computational and theoretical phonologist, and a Lecturer at the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Communication (TLC) at Utrecht University. In terms of research, I am fortunate to be able to be a part of the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS (UiL OTS). In the past, I have taught at the University of Toronto, the University of Huddersfield, and Harvard University, as detailed on my Teaching page and in my CV.

My research explores the learning and typological implications of complex phonological phenomena, as well as the implications that the reality of learning has for the grammatical representation of these phenomena. To this end, I use various computational machine learning methods, supplemented by traditional methodologies.

My 2016 UMass Amherst dissertation focused on the extension of hidden structure learning techniques to the learning of phonological features, opacity, and exceptionality, and I have since been exploring this idea further in various directions, as can be seen on my Papers page.
