About me

I’m a graduate student in the Linguistics department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  I’m interested in the relationship between speech perception and our phonological grammars. I’ll be graduating in September of 2021 with my masters. 

During academic year 2017-18, I was the Baggett Fellow at the University of Maryland at College Park. I have a BA in linguistics from Michigan State University (2017).

I’m working with Adam Liter and Karthik Durvasula, along with lots of other collaborators at Maryland and in multiple other departments around the country, on a project that looks at bias in the field of linguistics. Learn more on the website.

I love to hear from old students! Please feel free to contact me at bethany i dickerson at gmail dot com
