We run experiments that help us understand how languages work and how speech is produced and perceived. 

Our research uses a wide range of experimental techniques. Some examples of tasks we ask participants to do are: reading, listening, speaking with audio recording, speaking with video recording, speaking with sensors attached to speech organs, etc. Depending on their type, experiments differ in terms of duration (ranging from 15 minutes to 4 hours), location (e.g., online or at the lab) and form of compensation (i.e., money, gift cards, course credit).
