I am a second year PhD student in the linguistics department at Rutgers University.
I am interested in phonetics and phonology.
I am currently working on my first qualifying paper, which investigates the phonology and phonetics of stress in Munster Irish. I will collect acoustic data to evaluate the evidence for metrical theories that have been proposed for this language.
