I am interested in three main areas of linguistics: (i) phonetics & phonology, (ii) sociolinguistics, and (iii) usage-based models of linguistics. I'm especially interested in connections between these three areas. I think that phonetic variation in language is both a vehicle for social cohesion and a cognitive entity and so in order to fully understand how phonetic knowledge is structured in the human mind, we must also understand how it is used in society and how social and linguistic information are linked in cognition.
