I was appointed as a lecturer at the University of Surrey, in the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) in 2002. Now as senior lecturer, I have a small team of research students working with me, but there are opportunities for starting up new research projects, especially for home students. So, if you're interested in studying some aspect of speech or audio processing at Surrey, then I'd encourage you to consider a postgraduate degree. You can find more about my current and past research from: my publications list; project pages (Making Sense of Sounds, S3A, UDRC-2, POSZ, UDRC-1, SAVEE, QESTRAL, Dynamic faces, Dansa, Columbo, Balthasar, Nephthys); my PhD students (Jonathan Pincas, Veena Singampalli, Jack Longton, Lukasz Litwic, and Sana-ul Haq, Qingju Liu, Atiyeh Alinaghi, Marek Olik, Ben Hammond, Miguel Blanco Galindo, Hanne Stenzel); research fellows (Medha Pandit, Yoshi Shiga, Martin Dewhirst, Huseyin Oztoprak, Muhammad Awais, Phil Coleman and Qiang Huang).

In Surrey's Department of Electronic Engineering, I teach EE1.el3 Electronics III covering mechanics and acoustics for first-year undergraduates, and EEM.ssr Speaker & Speech Recognition to masters students. I run some first- and second-year labs and tutorials, and have been designing the new BEng/MEng degrees in Audio Media Engineering with the help of my colleagues. Previously, at the University of Birmingham, I have lectured EE2F1 Multimedia (Speech) and contributed to various modules: EEM4R Spoken Language Processing, EE1K1 Mathematical methods and principles, EE1F1 Introduction to Communications. I have also taught on MSc courses at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR, University of Southampton) and supervised laboratories there.
