In my position as a postdoctoral researcher at the KU Leuven I was working on the IWT project ALADIN. The ALADIN project attempts to build a self-learning speech interface, that learns both the vocabulary and the grammar from the user itself while using the device. Some video's of the ALADIN project can be found here.


December 2006 - March 31 2011, I was working as a Ph.D. student at Radboud University Nijmegen. I was enrolled in the MIDAS project, focusing on noise robust automatic speech recognition (ASR) using missing data masking. 

Other research projects

  • Exemplar-based noise robust speech recognition using NMF-techniques to combine classification and source separation.
  • Audio Event Detection
