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

Currently, I'm working on 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, the phonetics and phonology of Bantu languages (together with Nancy Kula and Laura Downing), and Catalan (together with Francesc Torres-Tamarit).
