Espy-Wilson receives NSF grant for speech recongnition

Associate Professor Carol Espy-Wilson (ECE/ISR) has received a new National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for "The Development of Low-Level Speaker-Specific Information for Speaker Recognition." This three-year, $431,000 grant investigates properties in the speech signal that can help recognize even people who are trying to conceal their identities. Espy-Wilson will identify these properties and develop automatic algorithms that will reliable extract speaker-specific information from the speech signal. Possible application include diagnostic tools for speech disorders, speech training aids, personalized human-computer interaction, and speech recognition.

Espy-Wilson also has received a grant in NSF's Research Experiences for Undergraduates program to support undergraduate students in her "Acoustic-Phonetic Knowledge and Speech Recognition" research, which is also supported by NSF.
