Welcome to my home page.
Here is a picture of me and BF Skinner.
As you can see, he truly was larger than life.
This picture was taken at
the University of Akron's archives.
I graduated in December 2006 with a Master's degree from the Linguistics department at the University of Pennsylvania.
I received an MSE degree from the department of Computer Science in December 2001.
My primary interests are in phonetics and theoretical phonology, including segment inventories, prosody, the "constraints vs. derivations" debate, and most particularly lexical tone.
Anoop has graduated from Penn's CIS department, doing work on statistical parsing.
He has an excellent collection of links.
Chung-hye is now teaching linguistics in Vancouver at Simon Fraser University.
She could do worse in terms of location, eh?

some internet sites I find interesting:Josh Marshall's Talking Points Memo
Steve Clemons's Washington Note
Kevin Drum's Washington Monthly
The Cunning Realist -- conservative, but even less stupid than belgravia dispatch
Pharyngula -- biology and atheism
Raw Story -- a refreshing alternative to fox "news"
Belgravia Dispatch -- conservative, but not stupid
Hullabaloo -- leftish political outrage
Crooked Timber -- academics' blog, mostly economists, historians, and philosophers
