I’m a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. While I enjoy all areas of linguistics, my primary interests lie in laboratory phonology, phonetics, psycholinguistics, and first and second language acquisition. I am particularly interested in how we use suprasegmental or prosodic cues in real-time word and sentence processing.
Current projects include an investigation of the interaction between tone and intonation in Thai, an exploration of the intonational phonology of Pidgin (Hawai‘i Creole), and a project that addresses the revitalization of Lakota.
