Kathryn Campbell-Kibler is an associate professor in the Department of Linguistics at The Ohio State University. She received her BA in linguistics and computer science and MA in linguistics from the University of Chicago, and her PhD in linguistics from Stanford University. Her research investigates the social meanings of linguistic variation, asking how speakers and listeners use variation to manage their social business. She focuses in particular on how listeners process individual variables and incorporate them into their social perceptions of speakers. She has two large project devoted to integrating research with education and outreach: she is the outreach director for the ""the Pod"", a working linguistics lab embedded on the floor of the science museum COSI and she is the director of See Your Speech, an interactive website that gives users visual displays based on acoustic analysis of their own speech.
