Research Interests

I am interested in speech, language and communication disorders and have worked in this field for 8 years. My main research interests are in automatic speech recognition (ASR) and its application to improve speech difficulty identification and diagnosis and stuttering and phonological disorders. I completed my PhD in Experimental Psychology in UCL, under the instruction of Professor Peter Howell, where I investigated and developed a speech screening test for young children.

My current research is in collaboration with Dr Kate Knill from the Machine Intelligence Laboratory and aims to develop an ASR that would enable the teachers and clinicians to identify children with speech difficulties for early intervention.

I am part of the Gibson-Katsos research group.
