Research Interests

My research interests are in the area of phonological theory, particularly the nature of phonological representations and the relative contributions of phonetic and phonological properties in accounting for sound patterning. More specifically, my work deals with theories of contrast and similarity and investigates the role that similarity plays in motivating phonological processes. My research in this area has focused on consonant harmony, coocurence constraints and ordering restrictions.
