My research focuses on acoustic phonetics, empowered by computational tools. After finishing my PhD in English Phonology (Australian English) at the University of Newcastle, and working as a Research Assistant at Griffith University analysing West Australian English (ARC-funded, led by Gerard Docherty), my experience is mainly on Australian English. I develop computational tools (scripts and online apps) for more efficient and practical analysis/visualisation of phonetic and phonological phenomena.
