Research interests and projects

  • phonological acquisition (formal and empirical issues concerning the origins and development of phonological organization in the child)
  • phonetics-phonology interface (links and boundaries between the gradient and the categorical); dynamical systems theory
  • generative phonology (especially, Optimality Theory)
  • acoustic phonetics
  • psycholinguistic models of language processing
  • metrical theories and the phonetic grounding of primary and secondary stress
