April 2012: Habilitation "On the production of prominence" at Institut für Phonetik und Sprachverarbeitung with Venia for Phonetics and Speech Processing.

Research

My research areas are
* speech motor control
* speech planning
* production of prominence and vocal effort: voice quality and articulation
* the role of the jaw for segmental and suprasegmental contrasts
* speech errors
* loops
* intrinsic pitch
* biomechanical constraints and their consequences for sound systems
* vowel reduction
* consonant clusters in various prosodic conditions (see SPP1234)
