I posted a couple weeks ago about some work I’m doing analyzing response time data using a mixture of shifted Wald (or inverse Gaussian) distributions. In order to test the model, I wanted to simulate some data from a known … Continue reading

When I took my first graduate-level phonetics course, my semester project (with a couple other students) was a study of voice onset time (VOT), a measure of the temporal difference between the release of an oral closure and the onset … Continue reading

It’s getting to be academic application deadline season, so I have finally gotten around to writing a new research statement. It’s on the Research page, which you can navigate to by clicking here or by using the handy-dandy navigation bar … Continue reading
I’m trying to build a two-component mixture model in BUGS (via R2WinBUGS) wherein each component is a shifted Wald distribution (see p. 801 in this pdf). I’ve built a mixture model in BUGS before (I plan to blog about it … Continue reading
In my last post on my 1993 trip to Wyoming, I wrote that I couldn’t figure out which of three valleys we had hiked up in the first few days of the course. After some further exploration of the relevant … Continue reading
