I am an Associate Professor and Delft Technology Fellow at the Multimedia Computing Group at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, working on human speech-processing inspired automatic speech processing. I have an interest in anything and everything speech, human and automatic speech processing, non-nativeness, under-resourced languages, background noise, emotion, and preferably combinations of these. I use different research techniques ranging from human listening experiments, eye-tracking, EEG, and computational modelling to deep neural networks.
Since 2017, I am on the Board of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), where I am the chair of the Gender Equality committee and co-chair of the Interspeech Conferences committee and of the Technical Committee. Since 2018, I am a member of the IEEE Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee (subarea Speech Production and Perception). Since 2019, I am an Associate Editor of IEEE Signal Processing Letters.
