Deep in thought

I teach phonetics, phonology, and general linguistics at WVU. My research interests include phonetics, phonology, the interface between the two, prosody and the syntax-phonology interface, and the structural analysis and cognition of music.

I received my PhD in phonetics and phonology from MIT in 2010. My dissertation (PDF, 7 M) examines the interaction of articulatory and perceptual goals in the organization of speech timing and its consequences for systems of phonological contrast.

Here is my CV (PDF, 163 k, updated 10/2016).

As of January 2016, I no longer work with journals published by Springer or Elsevier (I have one paper in press for 2016 at a Springer journal). Other for-profit publishers will be considered on a case-by-case basis. I will prioritize journals published by scholarly societies and university presses, and especially journals that operate according to the fair open-access principles outlined by the LingOA initiative.

Here are some papers:
