Titia Benders is a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics and Deputy-Director of the Child Language Lab at Macquarie University. She is also a member of the Macquarie University Phonetics and Phonology Lab, and the Centre for Language Sciences (CLaS). Benders investigates developing phonological representations at the interface between perception, production, and input. Her main interest is the acquisition of segmental and prosodic representations by by children between 6 months and 6 years of age, who acquire one or more languages, without or with hearing loss. A second line of research concerns the linguistic and emotional properties of infant-directed speech by parents (i.e., both mothers and fathers). Benders' work routinely includes techniques from phonetics, developmental psychology, and recent statistical insights.
Dr. Benders is interested in receiving enquiries from students with strong experimental, phonetic, and/or quantitative skills who want to join the Child Language Lab, the Phonetics Lab, (or both!) as a volunteer or to pursue a Master of Research or Ph.D.
