RESEARCH

My research agenda and published work is guided by questions pertaining to phonetics, phonology, language contact, and sound change, with an emphasis on language-specific phenomena and phonemic mergers in minoritized contexts such as Basque in Spain or Spanish in the US.

EDITED BOOKS

MacDonald, J. E., Fagyal, Zs., Beristain, A., & Turner, R. (in progress). Selected Proceedings from the 51st Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages. To be published in Isogloss, in Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory Series.
