Until recently, I was a PhD student at Clinical Audiology, Speech and Language (CASL) Research Centre, at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, UK.

I am also a member of the Speech modelling consortium based at the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis, Aalto University.

Research interests

I study articulatory and acoustic phonetics and am especially interested in speech motor control and related topics such as:

  • pre-speech articulatory phenomena,
  • speech reaction times,
  • oral motor control of flute playing, and
  • inter- and intra-speaker variation in speech production.

I am also interested in computational research. I am currently collaborating with others on a speech analysis toolkit and am looking for opportunities to more actively pursue my interest in physical modelling of the human vocal tract.

Research software

I am the main maintainer of the Speech Articulation ToolKIT which is a Python package for analysing (currently) ultrasound speech data (and other similar things in the future).
