Senior Teaching Coordinator (Statistics)

University of Edinburgh


Welcome to the homepage of Stefano Coretta [ˈsteˑfano koˈrɛtta].

I am the Senior Teaching Coordinator for Statistics in the Linguistics and English Language department of the University of Edinburgh (UK).

I received a PhD degree in linguistics from the University of Manchester (UK) in 2020. My area of research is linguistics with a focus on phonetology—the study of speech sounds and their relation to linguisticality (Human Language, see Haspelmath 2020), research methods and statistics. I was a postdoc researcher at the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany) from 2019 until 2021.
