My research interests lie within the fields of phonetics and phonology. In particular, I am interested in phonological processes such as vowel harmony and raising in Brazilian Portuguese and how these processes can be analyzed acoustically. Ultimately, I plan on using data from Brazilian Portuguese to find cross-linguistic trends in vowel production.
