About me
I am currently working as a forensic audio and video analyst at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ottawa, Canada. I am extending my recent PhD work to investigate acoustic properties of consonants in Canadian English and French. The Audio & Video Analysis Unit is also currently building a database of mainly bilingual CanEng and CanFr speakers (male and female) for speaker comparison research and casework.
