Jonathan Howell, who just finished his thesis “Meaning and Prosody: On the Web, in the Lab and from the Theorist’s Armchair” at Cornell University under supervision of Mats Rooth, has recently started a postdoc at McGill, funded by the Digging into Data grant  to Mats Rooth and Michael Wagner. He’ll be working on various projects that aim at understanding how prosody is used to convey meaning, both based on corpus evidence and experimental data.
