My research can be described as a contribution to speech production modeling. 

Certain aspects of both timing and duration appear to be very important components of a phonological unit. However, many phonologies do not take time into account. This might be because it is not often assumed that dynamical systems govern both us and our language.

My dissertation is about dynamic speech, and specifically how articulation behaves as a function of time. In my research, by examining, among other things, the Swedish word accents, I have tried to find out how the mechanical movements of articulation can guide our understanding of the phonological units. The movements, which, under the effect of a variable, are systematic over several speakers, have a greater chance of being part of a phonology than those which vary more both between and within speakers.

Public defense will be held in the autumn of 2020.
