My name is Jelske Dijkstra. I currently work as a linguist at the Fryske Akademy (Frisian Academy). My research focuses on (multilingual) language development, language variation and speech recognition. I also work as a staff member for University of Groningen/Campus Fryslân. Together with our development team we are setting up a new one-year master's programme on Voice Technology. Further, I work as a teacher and thesis supervisor at the study of Speech and Language Therapist of ProEducation (NCOI). Additionally, I am regularly involved in language-related projects.
My research interests are multilingualism, speech and language development, child language, language variation, phonology and speech technological applications. As a teacher I have specialized in language development, multilingualism, LARSP, research skills and thesis supervision.
