Welcome to my webpage! I am primarily interested in the acquisition of phonology. My research approaches individual phenomena in the acquisition of phonology from three directions: (a) formal analysis within the framework of generative grammar, (b) experimentation accessing learners’ linguistic knowledge, and (c) computational modeling incorporating components of linguistic theory.
