I'm an Assistant Professor of phonology at the Rutgers Department of Linguistics.
My research focuses on mathematical and computational approaches to phonology, phonological representation, and phonological learning. In particular, I'm interested in how model theory and formal language theory can inform, and be informed by, questions about phonological representation.
Empirically, I'm interested in (among other things) the tone patterns of the world's languages, especially the variation in tone and accent patterns among the Japanese dialects. I also believe strongly in the importance of careful documentation of underdescribed languages, and have done some work on the Land Dayak language Banyaduq (West Borneo, Indonesia).
