I am interested in interdisciplinary research in fields that connect to digital signal processing, data analysis and machine learing.
- Speech Synthesis and Recognition
- Assistive Technology / Medical Applications
- Speech Energy and Effort
- Auditory Feedback
- Articulatory Models
- Signal processing and data analysis
- Planetary atmospheres
- Planetary acoustics
- Emergent Systems
Before starting in Sheffield, I worked on acoustic and electric field measurement data provided by the Huygens space probe, which landed on Titan (the largest moon of Saturn) on the14th of January 2005. The goal was to collect data about weather phenomena like wind speed and the existence of lightning and rain. A similar sensor suite was proposed for a future Venus mission.
More information about Huygens to be found in the "Publications" and "Links" sections.
My PhD project at the Speech and Hearing Group in Sheffield
is about spoken language variation with respect to speech energetics.
Here is the project page.

allignement, HTK, etc:
