Dr Frank Diehl
From 2007 to 2011 I was working as a Research Associate at the Cambridge University Engineering Department. I was a member of the Speech Research Group which is a part of the Machine Intelligence Laboratory in the Information Engineering Division. During that time I was working in the AGILE project team within the GALE program. My work focused on the development of Arabic speech recognition systems for the GALE project. In July 2011 I left Cambridge University and joined Nuance Communications.
I received his PhD in Automatic Speech Recognition from the Dept. of Signal Theory and Communications of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona, in May 2007. In my disertation (available for download here), I studied multilingual and crosslingual acoustic modelling for automatic speech recognition.
