Research Activities: 

Infant speech perception, segmentation, and lexical representations

Other Area(s) of Research:

Phonological acquisition (perception and production)

Research Interests:

My main research areas are 1) infant speech perception, segmentation, and lexical representations; and 2) phonological acquisition (perception and production). I am interested in what properties of the speech stream infants are sensitive to and whether these sensitivies change over time. I am also exploring the content of early representations. The potential richness of children's linguistic representations can be determined by examining both the perceptual abilities of infants and children's early production patterns.
