Welcome! I am a third-year graduate student at the Department of Linguistics at New York University.

I am interested in the relationship between speech perception and phonotactics, as well as the typology of phonemic contrasts and inventories. Nasal segments are a recurring theme in my current research. In addition to phonetics and phonology, I have a newfound interest in natural language processing.

Before coming to NYU, my research focused on the phonetics of discourse-level prosody in spontaneous speech in Taiwanese (Taiwan Southern Min), and I still have related research interests in tone sandhi and tonogenesis.

My advisor is Gillian Gallagher.
