A central theme of my research is the integration of phonetic knowledge in speech technology. I have worked extensively on text-to-speech synthesis, a wonderful framework for implementing and testing computational models of linguistic and phonetic processes - until the advent of end-to-end systems, that is. Another recurring topic in my research is the analysis and modeling of speech prosody. My recent work has focused on experimental methods and computational simulations to study aspects of speech production, perception, and acquisition.
