Welcome to my website!

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.).

Phonetics &

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.

Programming &
Data Science

I am using various programming and markup languages (e.g., C++, R , Java, Javascript, HTML) for my work. Python is my preferred programming language for data analysis.


In my quantitative analyses I am working mostly in the Bayesian framework.
