Disa Sauter has received a Vici grant from the Dutch Research Council (NWO). With the grant she will research non-verbal vocalizations such as laughing, shouting and sighing.

Sauter's research project is titled ‘Understanding nonverbal vocalizations: A computational ethology approach (VOCAL)’. People often make noises like laughing, screaming and sighing. In this project, Sauter and her team will establish when, how and why we make such sounds. They will analyse video and audio recordings made in everyday life by people from different cultures, as well as the vocalisations of deaf individuals and babies. The results will be useful for understanding voice pathologies in clinical populations, as well as shining a light on common everyday behaviours.

Congratulations Disa!
