I am a fourth-year graduate student at UC Santa Cruz Linguistics Department.
My research interests lie in Phonology and Phonetics, focusing on cross-language phenomena such as borrowings and foreign-accented speech.
My current projects involve perceptual adaptation to foreign-accented speech, acoustic and articulatory properties of geminated liquids in Japanese, and phonation types and tones in Santiago Laxopa Zapotec.
I am one of the co-coordinators of WLMA (Workshop on the Languages of Meso-America; ['wɪlmə]) at UCSC, and member of the LIP Reading Group, a Phonetics reading group mainly focusing on language identity and perception.
