I have a background in Language Technology (with focus on speech technology) and in Logopedics (Speech and Hearing Sciences). In my PhD work, I combine these two areas and explore possibilities of using speech technology to assist speech and language therapy for children with speech sound disorders. Specifically, I am interested in how children - with and without speech disorders - perceive their own voice and speech, and how they perceive automatically corrected versions of their own misarticulated speech. I believe that a device for automatic correction of misarticulated speech could constitute a valuable resource in speech and language therapy, to assist the children in becoming aware of the deficiencies in their current speech production, and to generate individualized speech targets for the children to aim their speech production towards.
On April 7, 2014, I defended my thesis. You can find information on this event here.
