I teach introductory, intermediate, and advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in phonological theory, phonetic/phonological analysis, and field methods (language documentation). Each year, the field methods course investigates an understudied language by working closely with a native speaker to analyze and document their language. In past years, we have worked on languages from diverse parts of the world, including Turkish, Tagalog (Filipino), Teochew (Southern Min), and Kwak'wala (Wakashan).
I also regularly supervise graduate and undergraduate research projects in the areas of phonology, phonetics, prosody, and language documentation/fieldwork. I have expertise in theoretical, field-based, and experimental methods.
If you are interested in learning more about any of the courses that I teach or in working on a research project with me, please feel free to get in touch!
