University of Hawai´i at Mānoa, EUA

She has been developping researches that examine the relationship between sounds and social meanings; she has been investigating, especially, how expectations about a speaker may influence how listeners interpret the sounds they produce. Her research relies on experimental methods to deal with phonetics, lexical access and social significance.

Albert Rilliard is a CNRS researcher at LIMSI (Orsay, France) and visiting professor at Rio de Janeiro Federal University (UFRJ, Brazil). He teaches phonetics and experimental data processing. His research interests are centered on variation in prosody, across languages and communication situations. Possibilities of communication mismatch across cultures, and the reasons rooting such problematic encounters are at the core of his questioning. He also works on the prosodic variation across Romance languages, applying objective metrics to help the measurement of observed differences, comparing with perception of spoken varieties – and the representation of dialects in different populations.
