Hi. My name is Fengyue(Lisa) Zhao. I am a second-year PhD student at the Department of Linguistics, Cornell University. My research interests lie in phonetics, phonology, computational linguistics, and psycholinguistics. I am part of the Cornell Phonetics Lab and the Computational Psycholinguistics Discussions research group . I got my BA in Linguistics and BS in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

About my name: “Fengyue 丰悦” is my Chinese name and I will use it professionally. “Lisa” is also my name — all my friends call me this way. Both names are fine for me!
My Chinese name is pronounced as:
