I’m a linguist in the Department of Linguistics and the Center for Advanced Study of Language at the University of Maryland. More specifically, I’m a psycholinguist. Even more specifically, I’m a laboratory phonologist (as my domain name suggests) and a phonetician.
I’m interested in the patterns and acoustics of speech sounds and how implicit knowledge of those patterns and the auditory system determine perception (and production) of speech. This tells us something about the contents of the faculty of language and how it interacts with the auditory system and other modules of the mind.
