Cluster Administrator, PhD Candidate, Linguistics

I am pursuing a PhD in linguistics with an interest in phonology and sound change. I am currently doing fieldwork with speakers of ʔayʔaǰuθəm (Comox-Sliammon), a Coast Salish language. Generally, my research falls within phonetics, phonology, or morphology. At present, I am interested in sound changes from Proto-Salish and the morphophonology and semantics of reduplication, from a synchronic and diachronic (comparative Salish) perspective.
