[Good News] Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Pape

Dr. Pape has accepted a tenure-track position in the Department of Linguistics and Languages

ARiEAL Researcher, Dr. Daniel Pape, recently accepted a tenure-track position in the Department of Linguistics and Languages at McMaster University. His research focuses on experimental phonetics, the link between speech production and speech perception, and the relationship between phonetics and neurolinguistics. More specifically Dr. Pape’s research examines the use and interplay of acoustic cues (i.e., cue-weighting) for (1) speech production and perception and (2) articulatory and biomechanical constraints in speech perception. Dr. Pape received his Ph.D. from the Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany) in the area of Phonetics with the dissertation entitled “Microprosodic differences in a cross-linguistic vowel comparison of speech production and speech perception”. He then pursued his post-doctoral research at the University of Aveiro (Portugal) working on the link between speech production and speech perception. His post-doctoral research focus was on the use of different acoustic and perceptual cues to stop and fricative voicing, cross-linguistically comparing the languages- European Portuguese, Italian, and German. During his post-doctoral training, Dr. Pape had an opportunity to work at the Gipsa-labs in Grenoble (France) where he investigated the use of biomechanical and articulatory synthesis for speech perception purposes.

Congratulations, Dr. Pape!
