I am a graduate of the PhD program in Linguistics at UCLA and was previously the Analytics Technical Manager at Sanas.ai.

My academic interests lie broadly in phonetics-phonology: phonologization, representation and phonetic implementation, and intonation. I am interested in issues like, what is the substance of the abstract representations in our minds? how do we get to sound from representation? what is the impact of lexical knowledge on performance? I am no longer properly active in academic research, but am still open to collaborations if you have an interesting research question!

I have worked on English, French, Mandarin, Burmese, and Icelandic.
