I’ve been teaching phonology and phonetics at Georgetown since 1994. My research interests include phonological theory, tone, second language phonology, phonetics (especially articulatory), and the phonology/phonetics interface. Before coming to Georgetown, I was a visiting scholar at Cornell University, a research linguist at Eloquent Technology, Inc, a lecturer at Yale University, and a research assistant at Haskins Laboratories. I received my Ph.D. from Yale University in 1993.
