About me

I am a researcher in the Phonetics Laboratory at the Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University. Before moving to Stockholm in 2014, I got an MA in linguistics and information science from Adam Mickiewicz University (2009) and a PhD in linguistics with specialisation in phonetics from Bielefeld University (2014). In 2018, I was awarded the degree of docent in phonetics.

My research interests focus on prosodic resources employed by interlocutors to coordinate and negotiate conversation flow. Since 2014, I have worked together with Mattias Heldner on respiratory control in spontaneous, multiparty conversation. I am currently the principal investigator in the research project Breathing in conversation, funded by the Swedish Research Council.

More recently, we have started to look into possbilities of recording and analysing voice quality variation in spontaneous speech using throat microphones. You can find some preliminary results in this paper.

Details of my academic work can be found in my CV. The best place to find my publications list is ORCID, which I try to keep reasonably up to date.

I am a strong advocate for free (libre) software. I am a maintainer (together with Hendrik Buschmeier) of TextGridTools, a Python toolkit for processing Praat annotations stored in TextGrid files, and RespInPeace, a Python toolkit for working with respiratory data collected with respiratory inductance plethysmograpy (RIP).

In addition to research, I also do some teaching, mostly related to processing and analysis of linguistic and phonetic data. In the last couple of years, my two mainstay courses have been Programming for linguists (BA course, 7.5 ECTS, spring term) and Statistics for linguists (MA course, 7.5 ECTS, fall term). A complete of list of the courses I have taught can also be found in my CV.
