​​​I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the department of Head and Neck Surgery at UCLA School of Medicine. I completed my PhD in Linguistics at the University of Southern California.​​​​  I study speech production, ​​with a special interest in the parallelism between quantitative (gradient) and categorical effects in the production of speech.  My research is grounded in the question​​ of how the abstract cognitive (linguistic) structure plays a role in shaping speech production. 
My goal is to contribute to a better understanding of speech production through empirical experimentation (acoustic recordings and movement tracking and real-time MR imaging of the vocal tract).  While at USC, I was actively participating in various 
Inner workings of my vocal tract :)
projects as a member of the USC Phonetics and Phonology Group, the Speech Production and Articulation kNowledge group (SPAN), and the Zevin Lab.​​ I am currently the newest bureaucrat at the UCLA Bureau of Glottal Affairs (Facebook: @UCLABGA).
