Thayabaran Kathiresan, MSc


I am a Ph.D., student in Prof. Dr. Volker Dellwo's team and a research assistant working in an SNSF project, " Acoustic Characteristics of Voice in Music and Straight Theatre, and Related Aspects of Production and Perception” under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dieter Maurer​

Having a background in machine learning and speech processing, I question the role and properties of indexical cues in speech (who is speaking?) and its related implications especially in infant-directed speech (how we talk to infants?). My other research interests are automatic speaker recognition using temporal-cues, and acoustics properties of high-pitched speeches.
