Timo B. Roettger
I'm currently a PostDoc in Jennifer Cole's Prosody and Speech Dynamics Lab at Northwestern.
I'm a linguist 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. I attempt to answer this question by investigating how communicative functions are phonetically encoded during speech production, how and when aspects of the speech signal are retrieved during speech perception, and how language users learn and generalise these patterns.
