Research Interests:

When we hear a voice, we cannot only understand what is being said, we can also glean information about who is talking: Are they female or male? Does this voice sound friendly? Is the speaker familiar? If so, who are they?

My research investigates how we perceive the voices of others beyond what they are saying. Specially, I am currently examining how we perceive information about a person’s characteristics (identity, age, sex, personality, regional origin), under which circumstances we can do this well and which circumstances might pose challenges, and how person perception from voices may interact with other sources of information (e.g. faces or prior familiarity with a person).
