Dr E. Janse (Esther)
Associate professor - Centre for Language Studies
Associate professor - Department of Language and Communication
I am a researcher in speech processing. I study spoken communication across the adult life span, in healthy and clinical populations (such as hearing-impaired or neurologically impaired adults). I teach in Radboud University's Linguistics programmes, particularly in the Speech and Language Pathology track within Linguistics.
