I am a fourth year Linguistics PhD student at New York University, working mostly on laboratory phonology, but I also do computational, socio- and neurolinguistics. I have an MA in Theoretical Linguistics from the Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest.
My main interest is subphonemic alternation and low-level categorization in phonology, and the relationship of subphonemic detail and morphological behavior. I am particularly interested in near-merger and incomplete neutralization. I'm currently working on an MEG study examining the correlation between a particular speaker's behavior on the near merger of the COT and COUGHT vowel in American English and the difference in brain response to stimuli on the COT-COUGHT continuum.
