My research interests lie in the phonetics and phonology of intonation, particularly the processing of contrast, the mental representation of intonation (in infants, adults, and non-natives), the integration of segmental and suprasegmental information during speech comprehension, the effect of the native language prosodic system on second language acquisition.
Information on current reserach projects can be found on my projects page.
