About me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the SpandH group of the University of Sheffield. 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.
