I am a linguistics PhD candidate at the University of Georgia. I study phonetics and phonology, and my specific research interests are related to reduced speech, subphonemic variation, coarticulation and assimilation, and speech synthesis.

I currently teach LING 3060: Phonetics and Phonology.

Also, I am the former present of the Linguistics Society at UGA (www.lsuga.com). LSUGA is a student organization that seeks to better the experience of linguistics students at UGA. We do many things, such as hold an annual academic conference (the Linguistics Conference at UGA, which is in its fifth iteration) and perform community service through taking care of our adopted highway.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing the harp and being outside.
