I am a doctoral candidate in the linguistics program at The Graduate Center, CUNY. My dissertation analyzes the phonetics and phonology of the Sikles dialect of Gurung, or Tamu, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in central Nepal.  I have also done work on prosody and sentence processing as a research assistant in The Graduate Center’s Psycholinguistics Laboratory.  I teach linguistics courses at Brooklyn College, CUNY.
