About me

I am a Speech and Language Pathologist with specialisation in Voice, and a researcher in Voice and Speech Science.

In 2009 I received my Ph.D. in Linguistics/Acoustic Phonetics from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUCSP), Brazil; this included a scholarship for the doctoral stage carried out at Department of Speech, Music and Hearing at the Royal Institute of Technology (TMH-KTH).

In 2010 I moved to Sweden and since then I have been involved in various voice-related research projects at KTH as well as in cooperation with other European universities. From 2015 I have also been part of the research team at Stockholm University’s Department of Linguistics; the team's research deals with the question of modelling audio-visual interactional cues throughout the period covering the emergence of the child’s first expressive vocalizations.

My main research interests are in the human voice and speech, particularly the relationships between production and perception in voice and speech; acoustic and articulatory phonetics; paralinguistics; the vocal expression of emotions in speech and singing; and multimodality in communication.
