I received my B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in information technology from University of Tartu in 2005 and 2007 respectively. From 2005 to 2008 I underwent graduate training at Nordic Graduate School of Language Technology.
From 2007 to 2008 I was an intern in Speech Technology Group, Toshiba Research Europe Limited. From 2008 to 2014 I was studying for my PhD degree in automatic speech recognition at University of Cambridge, where my supervisor was Professor Mark Gales. I am now a Research Associate workin gfor Prof Gales on the BABEL project.
I received the "Best Student Paper Award" at IEEE Workshop on Automatic Speech Recognition and Understanding for my paper "Generative kernels for noise robust ASR" co-authored with M.J.F. Gales in 2011.
Currently associated with projects:
