Ethan is an experimental linguist and the principal investigator of the VoiceLab, focused on the variability of identity through context and experience. He holds a master’s degree in Cognitive Science from Carleton University and a Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Florida. Ethan's research delves into the perceptual and social experiences of linguistically diverse individuals, exploring the neural and behavioral mechanisms underlying speech perception. His interests include understanding how ecological factors, personal social network diversity, and individual factors shape speech perception. Ethan employs psycholinguistic, electrophysiological, and network science tools to explore the intersection of language, cognition, and the environment.
