A central theme of my research is to integrate phonetic knowledge in speech technology. I have worked extensively on text-to-speech synthesis, a wonderful framework to implement and test computational models of linguistic and phonetic processes. Recent work has focused on experimental methods and computational simulations to study aspects of speech production, perception and acquisition.
