Karthik Durvasula's research seeks to answer questions related to the nature of phonological representations, especially phonological features, and the techniques linguists can use to probe them. Phonological research over the last 20 years or so has greatly benefited from its emphasis on experimental work, and in his more recent work, he has adopted this strategy by employing a variety of experimental techniques to get at questions related to speakers’ knowledge of phonological representations and generalizations.
