Assistant Professor in Intelligent Systems in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin. His scientific interests centre on understanding the brain mechanisms underlying speech comprehension. In his work, he develops data analysis methods and applies them to brain data to identify the neural processes responsible for the transformation of a sensory stimulus into its abstract meaning.
Lecturer in Speech and Language Technology, working at the Centre for Speech Technology Research at the University of Edinburgh. Her main focus of interest is how non-lexical aspects of speech contribute to discourse and dialogue understanding. She's particularly interested in speech prosody, e.g., pitch, energy, and timing, and how varying the way we speak can change our understanding of speaker intent in a dialogue from both a recognition and generation perspective.
