University of California, Santa Cruz

Grant McGuire received his BA in Linguistics from the University of Illinois and his PhD in Linguistics from Ohio State. After some time in the Phonology Laboratory at University of California, Berkeley as a visiting researcher and Post-Doc, he joined the faculty at University of California, Santa Cruz. His research is primarily concerned with the formation of perceptual categories and perceptual learning, but he has broader interests in speech perception and phonetics in general. His current research projects concern cue weighting and integration in sibilants, the role of talker variability in the attention to visual and auditory cues for anterior fricatives, and the role of attractiveness and gender stereotypicality in speech perception.
