Research

My current research interests lie on the intersection of:

  • Automatic speech recognition, text-to-speech synthesis, speaker recognition,
  • Natural language processing,
  • Electromagnetic articulography.

The projects I am working on are

  • Spatial modeling of Russian articulation. (2012 – 2013)
  • Automatic modeling and recognition of information structure of expressive speech. (2011 – 2013)
    The projects I have worked on earlier
  • Automatic interpretation of utterance prosody. (2009 – 2010)
  • Development of TTS for the Russian language using the syntactic and semantic analysis of a text. (2007 – 2009)
