I am a PhD student in the SNSF project Dynamics of indexical information in speech and its role in speech communication and speaker recognition, supervised by Prof. Dr. Volker Dellwo, Prof. Dr. Martin Meyer and Dr. Natalie Giroud. I have a bachelor’s degree in English philology (Kyiv National Linguistic University, Ukraine) and master’s degree in English linguistics (the University of Graz, Austria). I am interested in voice quality and voice dynamics, neurobiology of speech and language, and evolution of language. My PhD project focuses on the role of neuronal oscillations in speech processing, namely, which role different acoustic cues play in the entrainment to speech of specific speakers.
I am also a teaching assistant with Prof. Dellwo in the courses “Speech perception” and “Voice analysis”.
