Quick link: here is my poster from the recent ASA meeting.
I am a PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Washington in Seattle, and a member of the phonetics lab there. Before starting my graduate studies I was a graphic designer for four years, and I still maintain a part-time freelance design company called Boomslang Design. I also spent some time as Vice President of Northwest Tree Alliance, a start-up educational non-profit focused on sustainable urban ecologies. Before that, I did my undergraduate work in Neurobiology and Philosophy, also at UW Seattle.
In the grand scheme of things, I am interested in acoustic correlates of high-level linguistic structure and what they can tell us about the way that structure is processed and represented neurocognitively. I have fairly strong feelings about linguistic data sharing and cyberinfrastructure. I also have an enduring passion for the art of typography, and by extension, an interest in the issues surrounding text encoding (i.e., Unicode).
