Hi! I am a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Linguistic, University of Pennsylvania. My research interests are in speech science, sociophonetics, and more recently, social cognitive mechanisms involved in the processing of sociolinguistic variants. I also have a long-lasting research interest in the production and perception of lexical tones and speech prosody.
I am a member of the Language Variation and Cognition Lab. My advisor is Meredith Tamminga. The title of my doctoral dissertation is "The online adjustment of speaker-specific phonetic beliefs in multi-speaker speech perception".
