Espy-Wilson Receives NSF Grant for Speaker Recognition Research

Associate Professor Carol Espy-Wilson (ECE/ISR) has received a three-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant worth $431,000 for "The Development of Low-Level Speaker-Specific Information for Speaker Recognition." Her research investigates properties in speech signals that can help analysts recognize individuals, including those who are trying to conceal their identities. Espy-Wilson will identify these properties and develop automatic algorithms that will reliably extract speaker-specific information from the speech signal. Possible applications 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.
