I am interested in different aspects of speech sounds – from laboratory and theoretical phonology, over acquisition of second language phonology, to spoken word corpora, annotation, and speech recognition systems. I work with Slavic data, but also with data from under-resourced languages.
Her research focus is in phonology, including topics in theoretical phonology, computational and empirical approaches to phonology, second language and inter-language perception.
In the Phonetics & Phonology Lab, we focus on analyzing acoustic data from many languages to investigate various phonetic and phonological phenomena. We are interested in acoustics, articulation, and perception.
