About me

I am an associated senior lecturer (biträdande lektor) in phonetics 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 became docent in phonetics.

My research interests focus on prosodic resources employed by interlocutors to coordinate and negotiate conversation flow. In the years 2014-2019,  I was the principal investigator in the project Breathing in conversation, funded by the Swedish Research Council (co-applicants: Mattias Heldner, Jens Edlund). In the project, we worked on respiratory control in spontaneous, multiparty conversation.

Since 2020, I have been heading the project Prosodic functions of voice quality dynamics, funded by the Swedish Research Council (co-applicants: Mattias Heldner, Petra Wagner, Johan Sundberg), which investigates possbilities of recording and analysing voice quality variation in spontaneous speech using accelerometers attached to speakers' necks. You can find some preliminary results in this paper.

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). I have been also teaching various courses at Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

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, especially in research and teaching. 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).
