Research interests

What are the phonetic/phonological representations that infants and adults have? Why and how are they formed? How do they interface with other linguistic levels and other cognitive systems? To answer these questions, I combine multiple methodologies including spoken corpora analyses, behavioral studies, computational modeling, neuroimaging (fNIRS), and CAMAs.

I am also a proud member of:

  • The LSCP Babylab
    • The LangVIEW consortium (Language Variation in Input Environments around the World)
    • The DARCLE network (Daylong Recordings of Children's Language Environment)
  • HomeBank (the TalkBank section specialized in daylong recordings).
  • The metalab project
