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

Currently, I'm working on the diachronic change in loanword adaptations, and on the interaction of phonology and orthography. Furthermore, I'm looking at congenital amusia and its impact on speech perception and I work on the phonetics and phonology of Bantu languages (with Nancy Kula and Laura Downing).
