Introduction

I am a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Manchester and my primary supervisor is Dr. Ricardo Bermúdez-Otero. My research interests relate to the phonology-phonetics interface, morphologically conditioned phonetics and the life cycle of phonological processes. My PhD project focuses on phonological and phonetic sound patterns in Scottish Gaelic.
