Research Interests

My research is based on the premise that social, temporal, and spatial patterns of linguistic variation reflect the underlying structure of the human capacity for language.  I integrate experimental psycholinguistic methods, computational modeling, and the quantitative analysis of natural speech data to learn how speakers store and produce linguistic variables.
