Research Interests

Dr. Shattuck-Hufnagel investigates the cognitive structures and processes involved in speech production planning, particularly at the level of speech sound sequencing. Her work with speech error patterns and with the acoustic analyses of prosody has implications for cognitive models of speech production and for phonological theory, as well as applications in speech recognition and synthesis.
