My main focus recently has been the search for phonetic and phonological properties of pitch that are cross-linguistic. I have also used a combination of phonetic and phonological approaches to solve problems related to tonogenesis and uvularization.

I am also focusing on text-based descriptions of languages of Northeast India, in collaboration with native speakers.
