Personal profile


My research is about the possibilities and limitations of the body in the creation of language. I'm interested in the universals of spoken language, i.e. what is common to all languages. I'm especially curious about the smallest units (consonants and vowels) and how they are influenced by rhythm and melody (prosody).

How fast or how slow we talk, how we feel and where we come from affect how we sound when we talk. There are both similarities and differences between the languages of the world, which can be linked to the phonological rules of individual languages.

I defended my PhD in phonetics at Lund University in the autumn of 2020 with the thesis "Articulation in time. Some word-initial segments in Swedish".

I'm currently a project leader and guest researcher at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in a post doc project funded by the Swedish Research Council.
