My name is Philipp Buech and I am currently a PhD student at the Laboratoire de Phonétique et Phonologie, working together with Rachid Ridouane and Anne Hermes. In my thesis I am investigating the production and perception of secondary articulations in Tashlhiyt Amazigh, as well as applying modeling techniques in order to model these contrasts.
Before my current position, I received my B.A. and M.A. at the Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main (Germany) in Empirical Linguistics (specialization in Phonetics & Phonology). In my theses I investigated the R-aspiration in Modern Eastern Armenian (B.A.) and the perception of Zulu stop contrasts by naive German listeners (M.A.).
My research interests involve the phonetic investigation (both production and perception) of phonological contrasts. For this I am using instrumental (acoustics, EMA) and modeling techiniques.
In my quantitative analyses I am working mostly in the Bayesian framework.
