Hugo Quené received both his M.A. in Phonetics (1984) and his Ph.D. in Linguistics (1989) from Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
His dissertation was a phonetic study of speech segmentation, about phonetic cues for word boundaries. He has worked as an assistant professor in Phonetics at Leiden University, and as a research scientist developing linguistic analyses and intonation rules for Dutch text-to-speech systems. In 1989 he was appointed as assistant professor in Phonetics at Utrecht University. He has spent the year 2001-2002 as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A., where he studied speech rhythm and other topics. From 1999-2006 he held an adjunct position in the Liberal Arts program at Utrecht University.
From 2004 to 2016 he was senior associate professor in Phonetics at Utrecht University. Since 2016 Quené is professor in Quantitative Methods of Empirical Research in the Humanities. From 2014 to 2019 he was also director of the undergraduate school in Languages, Literature and Communication. His current research topics include quantitative research methods, variation in pronunciation, and self-monitoring during speaking. He has taught many courses in phonetics, linguistics, methods and statistics, and related topics at the BA, MA, graduate, and postgraduate levels.
