Areas: Computational linguistics, language acquisition, phonology, morphology

My research aims at understanding how linguistic structure can be learned from raw data. Supervised by John Goldsmith, my dissertation research focuses on morphological paradigms. My work has led to the active development of open-source tools for computational linguistic research:

  • Linguistica: Unsupervised learning of linguistic structure in Python (with John Goldsmith)
  • PyLangAcq: Language acquisition research in Python

When I have a minute or two to spare, I spend some time on the PyCantonese project for Cantonese linguistic research in Python.
