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.
News: Due to the pandemic, we have postponed the first Dutch Speech Technology Day at Delft University of Technology to later this year. Hopefully September 2020. More information can be found here. Join us!
