Past Members, Researchers, VoiceBase

I am a Research Associate in the SpandH group and working on the EPSRC project: “Natural Speech Technology”. I gained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Manchester with a thesis on visual speech synthesis, awarded in 2012. From 2012 to 2014, I worked as Research Engineer at Image Metrics researching Computer vision and Machine Learning techniques for facial analysis and animation. My research interests are in probabilistic models and their applications to speech recognition and synthesis.
