About John Culnan

I started work on my PhD in 2016 after completing an MA in Linguistics at the University of Hong Kong. I am interested in phonetics and experimental phonology, as well as automatic speech recognition and computational linguistics. I am currently working on research involving the production and perception of a sound change in Hong Kong Cantonese, as well as phonetic features of relevance in ASR for second language English speakers. When not working on linguistics, I enjoy cooking, eating, and exploring new cities.

Research Interests

acoustic phonetics; automatic speech recognition; computational linguistics; laboratory phonology; Cantonese; English
