My research focuses primarily on phonetics and phonology and their interaction. Often, phonetics and phonology are viewed as distinct areas of study. Yet there is an implicit relationship between phonology --the abstract representation and patterning of sounds as part of a sound system, and phonetics-- the physical output. The nature of this relationship has been at the center of my current research, in which I have investigated both processes and representations within phonology and phonetics. Methodologically Laboratory Phonology has offered new approaches to investigating the interface. With respect to language area, I have a particular interest in Indonesian languages and French.
