I am intrested in experimental phonetics and speech technology. I work in both basic and applied research. At present I am involved in research on the realization of prosodic prominence across languages and in the investigation of phonetic reduction in spontaneous Dutch spoken in communicative situations. I am also the project leader of a cross-disciplinary project on Computer-Assisted Listening and Speaking Tutor for Norwegian for foreigners. You can find more information, also about previous research topics, on my personal homepage.
