Bea Valkenier


After my graduation in both Developmental Psychology and Artificial Intelligence I started working as a PhD student at the Artificial Intelligence department of the University of Groningen.

I am interested in understanding and modelling the cognitive processes related to speech processing. Much is known about human speech processing, but this knowledge is fragmented and poorly integrated. One of the methods to better integrate the available knowledge is by modelling (behavioural) data.

Research interests:

- Speech perception

- Cognitive models of speech / language processing

  1. -Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA)

  2. -(perceptual) learning
