Growing up as a bilingual speaker of Catalan and Spanish in the multicultural city of Barcelona awoke in me an early interest for language. I am a phonetician working in prosody, i.e., the variations of pitch, duration and intensity that convey melody, meaning, and emotion to language. I am interested in how prosody shapes speech perception and the mental representations of words. My background in Hispanic linguistics, acoustics, laboratory phonology, and speech therapy inform my experimental work. If you are interested in working in prosody, phonetics, speech perception in any language, or in any aspect of Spanish phonetics, email me.
