My research interests are speaker specific features in infant directed speech (IDS) using machine learning algorithms and studying the characteristics of amplitude envelope and temporal fine structure in speech signals.


Currently I am a PhD student and research assistant working in a project funded by SNSF, “Acoustic Characteristics of Voice in Music and Straight Theatre, and Related Aspects of Production and Perception ” and also I am working in acoustics characteristics of the German Vowels with Prof. Dr. Dieter Maurer and Prof. Dr. Volker Dellwo.


I received my dual master degree (MSc) from Erasmus Mundus in Multimedia Signal Processing from KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden and Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain. I got my bachelor of engineering (BE) in electronics and communication from Anna University, India.
