Research Interests

How does statistical language learning and children's processing of subphonemic phonetic detail bear on children's lexical growth and cognitive development? I study children's language learning, psycholinguistics, acoustic phonetics, and how they all interact with children's cognitive and social development. I use behavioral experiments, computational tools, and web-based studies to begin to investigate these questions.
