I am a PhD candidate in Linguistics at Rutgers University. My broad interests lie in theories of phonology. I specifically look at phonological processes involving tone, intonation, and their interactions. This includes but not limited to tone-intonation representation issues, the computation of long distance processes in tone, and experimental approaches to tone and intonation using my own fieldwork data. 

My previous fieldwork trips took me to Benin, Niger, and Côte-d'Ivoire, where I worked on Ede Chaabe & Baatonum, Zarma, and Dan, respectively.
