Stefano Coretta

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). As part of my duties, I coordinate the statistical curriculum of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees within the department, teach statistics and research methods courses, and provide training for staff and students.

I am available as instructor for a range of Workshops on statistics and research methods and as collaborator on projects or papers requiring the planning and execution of statistical analyses. Get in contact with me for info.

My past and current research covers different areas of linguistics, with a focus on phonetology—the study of speech sounds and their relation to linguisticality (Human Language, see Haspelmath 2020)—and research methods including statistics and Open Science practices. For more details on my research interests, past/current research projects, and an overview of meta-models informing my research, check out the Research and Meta-models pages. You can find a list of research outputs (papers, software, etc) in Output.

I received my PhD degree in linguistics from the University of Manchester (UK) in 2020. I was a postdoc researcher at the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany) from 2019 until 2021.
