Current research: 

My research focuses on speech perception using spontaneous speech and second language learning. With my current projects I intend to add to the growing literature on L2 word segmentation. I specifically look at the use of F0 and syllable lengthening and how these are pitted against other cues such as lexicality. With the use of techniques such as eye-tracking and pupillometry I intend to better understand the process of Word Segmentation in real time.
