My research focuses on speech perception and word recognition, in both adults and young infants. Much of our work has been exploring infants' ability to perceive speech in noisy environments, such as multi-talker settings. We also explore such topics as how adult listeners adjust their perception for how an individual speaks, how infant listeners learn to generalize information across different talkers, and how early speech perception skills in infants relates to their later language development.
