My name is Kathrin Feindt, I live in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, and with current role as postdoctoral researcher I support the DFG-founded project “Sound Patterns and Linguistic Structures at the Transition Space in Conversation” at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel. In this, we investigate the most important intonational patterns leading to speaker change cross-linguistically with German as well as Swedish speakers.
I was born near Hamburg, and spend a year in Ireland, bevor beginning my linguistic studies at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena. I graduated with a M.A in German Linguistics after finishing my B.A in English Studies and General Linguistics. After my M.A, I moved back to my hometown to persue my academic carreer at the University of Hamburg.

Research Areas

Phonetics, Phonology, Phonological Development, Third Language Acquisition, Multilingualism, Conversational Analysis
