I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science at the University of Delaware. I received my PhD in linguistics from the University of Chicago in 2017. In my research, I examine patterns in speech acoustics, articulation, and perception in order to understand how language is structured, how it is learned, and how it gets passed on from one generation to the next. Much of my work draws on data from Medʉmba, a Grassfields Bantu language spoken in Cameroon, on which I have been conducting fieldwork since 2010.
