Professor of Linguistics & Cognitive Science ; Adjunct Professor of Second Language Studies

Indiana Phonetics Big Cheese, building on a rich foundation laid by Bob Port. Working alongside fellow Big Cheese, Kelly Berkson.

I'm also editor-in-chief of the Journal of Phonetics , and associate editor of the IULC Working Papers - Online

I'm also involved with running lab facilities:

  • Linguistic Speech Lab

  • Phonetics Lab

  • My research is in experimental approaches to phonological systems, with special interests in second language acquisition and historical dynamics. More about this on the research-page. More about me on the more-page.

    IU is a very special environment for phonetic research, due to the wide variety of expertise on campus in aspects of experimental speech research, and language areas. Some of the many people outside the department my students and I have learned many things about aspects of speech science research from are Tessa Bent, Isabelle Darcy, Diane Kewley-Port, John Kruschke, Jennifer Lentz, Rob Nosofsky, John Paolillo, David Pisoni, and Jim Townsend.
