Welcome!

I am an Assistant Professor of Linguistics in the English department of the University of New Hampshire. 

My main research area is intonation, mostly focusing on variation, but I'm also interested in more general questions of intonational meaning, including social meaning, and variation and change in segmental features. I'm particularly interested in Jewish languages; my dissertation work looked at Yiddish influences on Jewish English. Check out my CV (under "Bio") and Publication pages to see more of my work.

I currently teach the linguistics senior capstone course, Field Methods, along with Phonetics and Phonology, and Sociolinguistics. Check out the Teaching page to see past syllabi and other course materials! 

2019 is the UN Year of Indigenous Languages. To learn more about Abenaki, the Algoquin language that was spoken where UNH is now, click here.
