Gilbert Ambrazaitis is a senior lecturer in Swedish as a second language with a background in Phonetics (M.A. in Phonetics and digital speech processing, 2004; PhD in Phonetics, 2010).

He is associated with the Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS) and with the Educational Linguistics research group. He is also currently leading an externally funded project (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond), and is involved in another ongoing externally funded project at KTH, Stockholm (Swedish Research Council).

Gilbert's work has a strong focus on basic research in Phonetics, concentrating mainly on prosody - the melody and rhythm of speech. His current research is specializing on the multimodal nature of prosody on the one hand (i.e. the interaction between voice and bodily movements) and on children's acquisition of contrastive intonation on the other hand. 

Gilbert teaches Phonetics and pronunciation teaching at basic level in Swedish as a second language. He also supervises at basic and advanced level.
