Timo B. Roettger
I'm currently a postdoctoral fellow in Michael Franke's Cognitive Modeling Group at the University of Osnabrück. Before that I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Jennifer Cole's Prosody and Speech Dynamics Lab at Northwestern
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.
Started new postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Osnabrück, working with Prof. Michael Franke on computational models of language and movement behavior.
I was panelist for the latest Center for Open Science webinar. We talked about grassroots movements to advocate for open science. Video here.
New paper "The tune drives the text - competing information channels of speech shape phonological systems". out in Language Dynamics and Change [pdf]
