Research Goals

My research interests are in speech information processing and I have mainly concentrated on statistical speech synthesis. However, my research ideas bridge the gaps between the field of speech synthesis and other research fields, including machine  learning, speech production, and linguistics. My goals are to place speech synthesis on a more scientific basis, and to create commercially useful technologies.

  • ASR, MT, and speech synthesis
  • Speech production/perception and speech synthesis
  • Machine learning for speech synthesis
  • New applications for speech synthesis
