Research interests

My research interests lie primarily in phonetics and laboratory phonology, in particular phonation types or voice quality: how the voice contributes meaningful information about language.

I am also generally interested in the Hmong language, especially White Hmong (Hmong Daw) and Green Mong (Mong Leng). Since my arrival at UC San Diego, I have worked on a collaborative project with the Lao-Hmong Family Association of San Diego to document and research the language through personal stories, folk tales, and songs of local community members. The webpage for this project can be found here.
