My specialties are the phonological module and its interfaces. My current concerns are evidence for Generative phonological theories, modularity, and markedness. See my publications or read more about my research.

I am currently supervising Shu-hao Shih's doctoral research on the phonology and acoustics of sonority-driven stress, Eileen Blum's work on the acoustics of Munster Irish stress, and Christopher Oakden's research on Nanjing tone. I am co-supervising Luca Iacoponi's doctoral dissertation (with Prof Adam Jardine) on surface correspondence, Hazel Mitchley's qualifying paper on tone-foot interaction (with Prof Akinbiyi Akinlabi), and Sten Knutson's and Nicholas Schrum's research on polysyllabic shortening (with Prof Karin Stromswold).
I have supervised 14 graduate students as committee chairperson (5 PhD dissertations, 5 MPhil Theses, 9 Graduate Qualifying Papers) and served on the committees of 13 others. I have supervised 7 Undergraduate Honors Theses, 2 Undergraduate Independent Study Projects, and 72 undergraduate research students.

This semester (Spring 2017), I am on sabbatical. Next semester (Fall 2017), I will teach undergraduate Phonetics (615:451) and graduate Phonology 1.
I have taught phonetics, phonology, and morphology at all levels. I have also taught introductory linguistics courses (100- and 200-level).
