I'm a cognitive scientist with a focus on sound patterns of human language. My research interests centre around the question of how multi-dimensional, continuous aspects of speech can be related to discrete behavioural observations and cognitive representations. I attempt to answer this question by investigating how communicative functions are physically encoded during speech production, how and when aspects of the speech signal are retrieved during speech perception and processing, and how language users learn and generalise these patterns. One common methodological theme that runs throughout my work is the critical assessment of experimental design and a strong commitment to quantitative methods, statistical models and open science.
