BSc(Hons) PhD MIET SMIEEE MAUA
I am the Operations and Business Development Manager (BDM) for the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Speech and Language Technologies and their Applications hosted in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield.
I am an ex officio Board Member of Sheffield Digital (since Nov 2015).
From November 2015 until April 2019, I was the Business Development Manager for both the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
Prior to November 2015, I was a post-doctoral researcher (firstly Research Associate, then Research Fellow) for 13 years (2002 - 2015) funded by numerous EU FP projects with research interests covering low-cost sensing, citizen engagement in science, semantic search, software interface evaluation and novel approaches for improving data understanding.
I also have interests in audio and speech processing, auditory perception and automatic speech recognition (my 2002 PhD modelled how attention influences the perception and understanding of sound).
During my PhD and initial postdoctoral period (to 2009), I worked within the Speech and Hearing research group. During this time, I worked with Prof Thomas Hain on the creation of the world's first web-based fully functioning automatic speech recogniser (webASR) for which I wrote the web service and API.
From 2009, I was a senior researcher within the Organisations, Information and Knowledge (OAK) research group.
From 2014 until November 2015, I was Principle Investigator (PI) and Project Coordinator of the €170,000 Crowd4Sat (Crowdsourcing For Observations From Satellites) project which was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) involving 6 European industrial partners.
- Crowd4Sat: Crowdsourcing For Observations From Satellites (European Space Agency) - Principle Investigator (PI)
- WeSenseIt: Citizen Observatory of Water (EU FP7) - project technical manager
- EIDC: Energy Innovation for Deprived Communities aka Big Energy Upgrade (ERDF) - energy consumption monitoring lead
- SEALS: Semantic Evaluation At Large Scale (EU FP7) - Work Package Leader for two work packages; coordinator of two international evaluation campaigns; Project Management Board
- AMIDA: Augmented Multi-party Interaction with Distance Access (EU FP6) - Work Package Manager with overall responsibility for all audio, video and multimodal processing
- AMI: Augmented Multi-party Interaction (EU FP6)
- M4: MultiModal Meeting Manager (EU FP5)
- Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) project - then an agency of the UK Government's MoD, now QinetiQ
- Hossein Farmy Ph.D. Scholarship
