I am a PhD student at computational linguistics department , university of Zürich and SFB 1102 project C1 at the Language Science and Technology department, Saarland University.
Currently, I am looking at the interaction between information density and channel characteristics (background noise).
My PhD topic: Speech dynamics as a function of channel and listener variability
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in 2011 from the Phonetics and Linguistics Department in Alexandria University. I went on to obtain a Master of Arts degree from the same department in 2017.
My master thesis was entitled "Building audio- visual Arabic phonetically annotated corpus for speech processing purposes". The building of the corpus consisted of 6 main stages: speaker selection, sentences selection, recording, analysis, annotation and evaluation.
From 2012 to 2018, I was a teaching assistant in phonetics and linguistics department, Faculty of Arts, Alexandria University.
- Course 1: physiological phonetics (1, 2).
