I am a PhD student in Prof. Dr. Volker Dellwo's team and a research assistant working in an SNSF project, “Acoustic Characteristics of Voice in Music and Straight Theatre, and Related Aspects of Production and Perception ” under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dieter Maurer 

My research interest includes, the acoustics properties of high fundamental frequency German Vowels using automatic speech recognition (ASR). Also, I am investigating the role of motherese speech in infant's voice discrimination using computer models.
