Hello and welcome to my homepage!

My name is Jana Neitsch and I earned my PhD in 2019 at the University of Konstanz. My focus is on phonetics and phonology and on the empirical investigation of the human voice. During my master's degree and my doctorate in linguistics, I developed a great interest in topics at the interface between linguistics and psychology. This includes the investigation of written and spoken hate speech and the discrimination of minorities in social media, giving charismatic (sales) presentations to convince an audience, and the expression and perception of emotions in hate speech (using human bio signals: heart rate, breathing patterns, brain activity, skin conductance response, pupillometrie), irony and rhetorical questions.
