I have over 10 years of experience working in data science. Currently, I work as Research Associate on two projects at The University of Sheffield. In one project we are using speech sounds to predict the severity of obstructive apnoea in long-Covid patients. In the second project, Cadenza, we are designing machine-learning challenges to revolutionise music listening for people with hearing loss.

In my PhD project, I was focused on understanding the key differences between sung and spoken speech that make the former more difficult to recognise and exploit those differences to adapt Deep Learning technologies designed for spoken speech to sung speech.
