PhD position in Forensic Phonetic Speaker Identification Project
Tel.: +41(0)44 634 59 48
I am a PhD student at the Phonetics Laboratory, University of Zurich, currently visiting the Laboratoire d'Informatique pour la Mécanique et les Sciences de l'Ingénieur (LIMSI) in Paris. Until December 2014 I was a research assistant in the SNF Project Forensic Phonetic Speaker Identification Based on Temporal Evidence at the Phonetics Laboratory, University of Zurich.
I am interested in forensic phonetics, speech rhythm, foreign accents, dialectology, first and second language acquisition. My PhD project evolves around temporal features of foreign accented speech and what these can tell us about speaker characteristics and speaker origin.
I have co-developped several dialect prediction applications for science communication and crowdsourcing:
