Ryan Shosted
Professor, Director of the Phonetics Lab @Department of Linguistics
Ryan Shosted is an experimental phonetician and phonologist. His research focuses on how phonetic principles shape phonological, typological, and diachronic outcomes in language. He specializes in the production of speech, whether through the lens of acoustics, kinematics, or aerodynamics. He currently uses ultrafast dynamic magnetic resonance imaging to study the map between the physiology of the vocal tract and the acoustic signal that emanates from it. As part of his commitment to public engagement, Ryan has since 2008 accompanied the local Q'anjob'al (Maya) community of Champaign-Urbana in publishing Mayan-language literacy materials and educating the non-Maya community about the Q'anjob'al language.
