Members of the group

The members of the speech group are active in three domains: Primarily, each group member is engaged in one of the current research projects or alternatively in a KTI project (knowledge transfer project supported by the Swiss authorities, i.e., the "Kommission für Technologie und Innovation"). Additionally, everyone has some teaching duties (e.g. lectures in speech processing) and has to supervise student projects.

The third domain includes consulting and developments for the industry. In the course of time the size of the group varied between five and ten members. Typically, the group members are young postgraduate researchers (electrical engineers, computer scientists and linguists) doing their Ph.D. thesis (some examples are: [Rus90], [Hub91], [Tra95], [Hut96], [Rie98], [Beu07], [Rom09b], [Kau09], [Ger11], [Ewe12], [Hof14] and [Nag15].
