I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the Idiap Research Institute and PhD candidate at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), supervised by Mathew Magimai Doss. My current research focuses on multilingual and emotional speech synthesis within the Innosuisse flagship project Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies in collaboration with Swiss TXT.
Before that I was a Marie Curie Research Fellow in the Horizon 2020 TAPAS project, working on speech recognition for pathological speech with limited resources.
I completed the MSc in Speech & Language Processing at the University of Edinburgh and worked with Sharon Goldwater on unsupervised modeling of speech for low‑resource languages. During internships at Google I have also worked on coreference resolution and speech synthesis.
Beyond that, I’m also interested in speech recognition in general, unsupervised learning, computer‑assisted language learning and pronunciation training, and other topics in NLP and machine learning.
