Research Interests
new acoustic models such as Linear Dynamical Systems for speech recognition and automatically finding suitable units to model with them; integrating speech recognition with other tasks like information extraction or dialogue move detection; the use of articulatory information for both recognition and synthesis, including applications such as join cost calculation and join smoothing for unit selection synthesis;extending my earlier work on the use of phonological/accoustic/articulatory features for ASR; applying methodsdeveloped for speech processing to the singing voice.
