I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant working on our new project called "Complexity in Derivational Morphology" in the Language and Brain Laboratory here at Oxford, and in collaboration with the University of Konstanz in Germany.

I am responsible for the design and execution of behavioural and neurolinguistic experiments on English, and the analysis and writeup of cross-linguistic patterns in word processing in English and German.

In addition to work on the grant, my research interests include investigating the acoustic and articulatory structure of the lexicon, and the organisation of perceptual and motor systems around the encoding of higher-order linguistic information in the acoustic signal.

I have started this work with English, but would also like to extend it to Korean, Malayalam, and other languages in distinct language families and regions of the world.


Current research interests:

• Acoustic, phonological, and morphological processing
• Models of lexical organization and encoding
• Cross-linguistic analysis of speech systems
• Complexity in language structure and development
