I am a Ph.D. student in Prof. Dr. Volker Dellwo's team and a research assistant working in a candoc project "How do infants identify their mothers by their voice: The role of temporal characteristics in infant-directed speech style"

Having a background in machine learning and speech processing, I study the indexical cues in speech (who is speaking?) and its related implications especially in infant-directed speech (how we talk to infants?). My other research interests are automatic speaker recognition using temporal-cues, and acoustics properties of high-pitched speeches.
