My main area of research is computational linguistics, specifically the relationship between intonation and discourse. My current interests include deceptive speech, spoken dialogue systems; tools for linguistic fieldwork; entrainment in dialogue; translating prosody; speech synthesis; speech search in Low Resource Languages; and hedging behaviors. A complete list of publications can be found in my resume; if you have trouble finding any papers, please send me email. Slides from a tutorial with a bibliography are also available for download. Also, I have written several general surveys of work on intonational meaning and text-to-speech synthesis, including "Communication and Prosody" in Speech Communication 36 (2002), an article in the Handbook of Pragmatics, "Pragmatics and Intonation," (2003), and a section of the second edition of the Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics on "Speech Synthesis, Prosody" (final draft).
