About me

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Languages and Computer Science, University of Malaga, Spain. My current research focuses on speech restoration after disease or trauma using machine learning and signal processing.

Research interests

  • Clinical applications of speech technology.
  • Automatic speech recognition.
  • Machine learning.
  • Speech processing.

Latest news

Jointly with Tanja Schultz and Lorenz Diener from Bremen University, I’m organising a special session on Novel paradigms for direct synthesis based on speech-related biosignals at Interspeech 2018. More information can be found here.
