In a broad sense, I am interested in understanding how language-users navigate the challenge of understanding the wide variability of language they encounter on a daily basis. More specifically, this has developed into three avenues of research. The first is looking at syntactic adaptation in written contexts. The second is exploring how prosodic entrainment is related to social interactions. The third is looking at the ways in which native listeners of a language process native and nonnative speech differently.
