I am a fifth year PhD student studying Linguistics at the University of Southern California (USC), under the advisement of Louis Goldstein. I received a B.A. with High Honors in Linguistics from the University of Michigan in 2011, and an M.A. in Linguistics from USC in 2015.
My main area of interest is the relationship between music and language, and in particular how the movements of the mouth in speech, singing, and beatboxing are coordinated. I have led and collaborated on projects about speech errors, morpho-phonological processes, beatboxing, tracking articulator movement, and training computers to be dyslexic with neural networks.
