Pozdravljeni! Welcome!

I am Nika, a first year PhD student at UMD in the Linguistics department, supervised by Naomi Feldman and Bill Idsardi.

I am interested in speech perception, computational phonology and auditory science.

I finished my first Master’s double degree in French Studies and Comparative Literature at the Faculty of Arts in University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. I did a second Master’s degree in Linguistics in University of Paris, France, supervised by Ewan Dunbar. I have been mostly interested in speech perception and cognition. My previous work was focused on modelling non native speech perception.
