Research Expertise

Description

I am an expert phonetician with many years of experience in speech research. My research primarily concerns the role of the voice source in speech communication, in particular voice source dynamics in the signalling of linguistic prosody (e.g., prominence) and emotion and affect. I am an expert in the prosodic analysis of speech and speech acoustics. I have worked on the development of robust tools for voice analysis. I have a strong interest in studying prosodic characteristics of speech of individuals with neurological and psychological disorders.
