CSD Associate Professor Presents in Europe

Stefan Frisch, PhD, recently presented a keynote address, “Deep Phonotactics”, at the 2nd International Workshop on Phonotactics and Phonotactic Modeling at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy, November 22nd.  This workshop aimed to provide an informal atmosphere for discussion on experimental and theoretical aspects of phonotactics and phonotactic modeling in language sciences.  Dr. Frisch’s research examines the articulatory and cognitive processes that underlie knowledge of speech and language. 

During his trip to Europe, Dr. Frisch also presented two papers from his collaborative work with Dr. Nathan Maxfield (CSD) and graduate student Alissa Belmont (CSD) at the 6th Ultrafest meeting at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.   Ultrafest is a meeting of researchers working with Ultrasound imaging technology for linguistic analysis. The meeting was co-hosted by the CASL Research Centre (Centre for Audiology, Speech and Language, Queen Margaret University) and CSTR (the Centre for Speech Technology Research, University of Edinburgh).  This trip was supported in part by a USF Faculty International Travel Grant
