Short CV

Karin Wanrooij studied Japanese at Leiden University and Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam. Her PhD research (supervisors: prof. dr. Paul Boersma and dr. Titia van Zuijen) examined how infants learn to perceive the vowels of their mother tongues and how adults learn to perceive the vowels of a new language. The thesis yielded a nomination for the AVT/Anéla Dissertation Prize.

Aside from doing research, Karin has taught several classes at different universities, in the areas of phonetics, language acquisition, cognitive development and statistics.

Karin has been a postdoctoral researcher at the programme group Educational Science of Leiden University since October 2016.            


Karin Wanrooij’s current project “The effect of reduced pronunciations on understanding a second language” is financed by the NWO division the Netherlands Initiative for Education Research (NRO).
