    Personal profile


    I am a computer scientist in the Forensic Speech Data Science Laboratory and Forensic Data Science Laboratory, part of Aston Institute for Forensic Linguistics and the department of Computer Science.  I focus on forensic voice comparison (related to automatic speaker recognition). Prior to this I worked on the Think Beyond Data (ERDF System Analytics for Innovation) project providing free consultancy in artificial intelligence, data analytics and machine learning to SMEs in the Greater Birmingham, Black Country and Marches areas.  My research background is in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Business Process Mining; more generally machine learning, data analytics and AI.

    Research Interests

    Automatic Speech and Speaker Recognition (ASR), Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Business process mining, Speech Science.


    Following a 1st class (hons) batchelor's degree in Computer Science from Loughborough University, I worked in several industries as an analyst programmer, systems integrator, Unix and storage systems administrator and technologist before returning to academia at the University of Birmingham in 2008 to gain an MSc (distinction) in Advanced Computer Science and a PhD for my thesis "A framework for the analysis and comparison of Process Mining algorithms" (2014).  I have since held several research fellowships, in Automatic Speech Recognition, Automated conflict resolution in clinical processes (Birmingham), ERDF-funded AI and data analytics consultancy to SMEs (Think Beyond Data, Aston).
