I am a research associate for the VoiceBase team in the MINI and SPandH groups at the University of Sheffield implementing speaker diarisation systems. My previous post-doc involved looking into speech emotion recognition across acted and more natural datasets. My PhD focused on speaker diarisation in which I investigated clustering using deep neural networks in a semi-supervised fashion. I also evaluated the current scoring metrics and presented a novel metric based on segment evaluation. During the PhD I participated in the MGB Challenge 2015 with the MINI group in which I contributed to the diarisation and transcription systems. In the summer of 2015 I travelled to Silicon Valley for an internship with Andreas Stolcke at Microsoft Research researching speaker linking. I originally came to the University of Sheffield to study for my MSc Computer Science with Speech and Language Processing in which my dissertation looked into speaker diarisation for BBC archives.
