About me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the SpandH group of the University of Sheffield working in the DiSArM project (Digital Speech Recovery from Articulator Movement). In DiSArM we try to restore the ability to speak to people who have lost their voice due to larynx cancer.

Research interests

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