José Elías-Ulloa specializes in phonetics and phonology. His main interests are the study of prosody (syllable weight, prosodic structure, intonation) and the interaction with segmental phenomena. In particular, he studies the prosody of indigenous languages in contact with Latin American Spanish as well as the varieties of Spanish that emerge from that contact. He has conducted several fieldtrips in Peru, and research on the Spanish and Amazonian languages spoken there.
