Dr. Simon Roessig receives an IPA travel grant to present a paper at ICPhs 2023

Post-Doctoral researcher Dr. Simon Roessig has received an International Phonetic Association (IPA) travel grant to present a paper at the 2023 International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS 2003), which will be held August 7-11, 2023 in Prague, the Czech Republic.   


The grant will cover up to 500 BPS (British Pound Sterling) of Simon's travel costs.

Dr. Simon Roessig to join faculty of the University of York (UK)

Post-doctoral researcher Dr. Simon Roessig has accepted a faculty position at the University of York (UK), where he will be a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) of Phonetics and Phonology. 


Once he starts in August 2023, Simon will be quite busy as both a lecturer and as an experimental linguist.  


He will begin by teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in phonetics, phonology and quantitative methods.


In addition to teaching, Simon will continue his ongoing research on English and German prosody, and plans to extend that work to the Persian language.  He will also perform new articulatory phonology experiments. 


We will miss Simon and how he enlivened our lab meetings with his keen insights into phonetics and phonology, and we hope that he and his family (wife Lina and children Julius and Martha) make a smooth transition to life in England.
