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, 166 k, updated 2/2017).

As of January 2016, I no longer work with journals published by Springer or Elsevier (I have one paper in press 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:
