Timo B. Roettger
I'm currently a PostDoc 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. 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 how language users learn and generalise these patterns.
I was panelist for the latest Center for Open Science webinar. We talked about grassroots movements to advocate for open science. Video here.
