Suyeon Yun received her PhD in linguistics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, September 2016, with specializations in phonetics and phonology. She is interested in understanding how phonetic factors inform phonological universals, and in developing phonological theory to incorporate such factors so that it can explain a wider range of linguistic data. Her dissertation explores the role of auditory factors in consonant cluster perception and vowel epenthesis. She has also worked on compensatory lengthening, morphophonology of the Arabic language, phonology and syntax of right dislocation, etc.
