RKS Prof. Ryan Shosted is an experimental phonetician and phonologist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 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 works toward models of speech production built on data from typologically and geographically diverse languages, including understudied and endangered languages.
