I am a linguist, more precisely a phonologist and phonetician, and my areas of interest include:

Currently, I'm working on the perceptual motivation of the Southern British English /u/-fronting (with Kateřina Chládková, Daniel Williams and Sam Hellmuth), including a computer simulation of this process. Furthermore, I'm looking at the restrictions on speech perception by amusics (with Jasmin Pfeifer and Mats Exter). And I started working on the phonetics and phonology of Bantu languages (with Nancy Kula and Laura Downing).
