Dr. Daniel Pape is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Languages at McMaster University. His research focuses on experimental phonetics, the link between speech production and speech perception, and the relationship between phonetics and neurolinguistics. More specifically, his research examines the use and interplay of different acoustic cues for (1) speech production and perception and (2) articulatory and biomechanical constraints in speech perception. Dr. Pape received his Ph.D. from the Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany) in the area of Phonetics with the dissertation entitled “Microprosodic differences in a cross-linguistic vowel comparison of speech production and speech perception”. He then pursued his post-doctoral research at the University of Aveiro (Portugal) working on the link between speech production and speech perception. His post-doctoral research focus was on the cross-linguistic comparison of different acoustic and perceptual cues for the languages European Portuguese, Italian and German. During his post-doctoral training, Dr. Pape also had the opportunity to work at the Gipsa-labs in Grenoble (France) where he investigated the use of biomechanical and articulatory synthesis for speech perception purposes.
