How does children's use of talker information in voice bear on their linguistic and social development? I study children's language learning, psycholinguistics, acoustic phonetics, and how they all interact during children's linguistic and social maturation. I use behavioral experiments, computational tools, and web-based studies to begin to investigate these questions.
