Research area: vocal communication, emotions.
I am interested in how the voice can convey information over and above a linguistic code - for example, by using a rough voice quality, nonverbal vocalizations such as laughing and screaming, etc. I study these acoustic phenomena from a cognitive and biological perspective, with particular focus on sensory biases and auditory attention. The objective of this research is to shed light on the evolution of vocal communication and its universal features across human cultures and animal species.You will find more information about the research, publications and ongoing experiments on my page at www.cogsci.se
I'm looking at the way humans can express and interpret emotional states without using language (non-linguistic vocalizations such as laughing and screaming) - the informational content of such sounds, their universality and evolutionary roots. My supervisors are Christian Balkenius and Tomas Persson. You will find more information about the research, publications and ongoing experiments on my page at www.cogsci.se
