Arantza del Pozo

I've moved!

I'm now with VICOMTech - Human Speech and Language Technology Group

I am a former PhD student of the Machine Intelligent Laboratory at the Cambridge University Engineering Department under the supervision of Prof. Steve Young. Previously, I did an MPhil here in Cambridge and a BEng at the University of Deusto in Bilbao. My studies were funded by the Basque Government. I am also a member of Christ's College.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on the application of voice conversion techniques to the enhancement of disordered speech. I am particularly interested in tracheoesophageal speech and I am currently developing systems for the repair of its excitation and duration characteristics.
