Welcome

This is my academic website, where you can find information about my current research. In the future, information about the classes that I teach will also be available here. I’m currently an assistant professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders at The University of Alabama.

My research and teaching interests include phonetics and sociophonetics, sociolinguistics, speech perception and language processing, and other aspects of Southern and Appalachian Englishes. In particular, my current research agenda focuses on how individual-level social attributes are expressed phonetically, centering on vocalic and prosodic variation. My research has been published in journals like the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, American Speech, and the Southern Journal of Linguistics.
