Research interests

I work with machine learning, speech technology and cognitive systems. During my PhD studies I developed the low latency phoneme recogniser in the Synface prototype. In the BioASU project I have been involved with modelling early language acquisition and multi-modal perception.

I recently participated in the Crosstalks Show The power of the human voice. Click on the link to see program.
