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 these issues as they relate to Jewish English. Check out my CV (under "Bio") and Publication pages to see more of my work.

I regularly teach the linguistics senior capstone course, Field Methods, along with Phonetics and Phonology, and Sociolinguistics; I also occasionally teach Languages in Contact and Language and Gender. Check out the Teaching page to see past syllabi and other course materials!
