I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics at UC Davis and co-director of the UC Davis Phonetics Lab.

I’m a phonetician, mostly interested in speech perception. I am interested in questions like:

I investigate these topics using behavioral experiments (I play speakers a sound and ask them, what did you hear?), and using statistical models to investigate the results. https://santiagobarreda.com/bmmrmd/introduction-experiments-and-variables.html I also write software for phonetic analysis, lately focused on formant tracking, and am interested in statistical methods for the analysis of linguistic data.

I can be contacted at sbarreda@ucdavis.edu, or found at 265 Kerr Hall.
