Santiago Barreda, UC Davis

Santiago Barreda, an assistant professor of linguistics at the University of California, Davis, studies vowel perception with a focus on the active role of the listener.

Barreda’s research is also interested in how apparent speaker characteristics are perceived and how these might interact with speech perception through perceptual experiments. He models human vowel perception, with a focus on the psychological control structures that organize speech perception in listening situations, and on the integration of multimodal information, and information that is not typically considered central to speech perception.
