About me ...

just from a technical point of view

Hello,

Currently, I am Professor at University of Crete, Department of Computer Science, CSD UOC and Associate Researcher in the Networks and Telecommunications Laboratory of the Institute of Computer Science ICS at FORTH. I received the Diploma of Electrical Engineering from the National Technical University, N.T.U.A., of Athens in 1991 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Signal Processing from the Ecole National Superieure des Telecommunications, ENST, Paris, France in 1992 and 1996, respectively. From 1996 until 2001 I was with AT&T Labs Research (Murray Hill and Florham Park, NJ, USA) as a Senior Technical Staff Member. In 2001 I joined Bell-Labs Lucent Technologies, in Murray Hill, NJ, USA (now Alcatel-Lucent). Since 2002 I am with the Computer Science Department at the University of Crete and the Institute of Computer Science at FORTH.

I am on the Board of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), member of the IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee, and on the Editorial Board of Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering, JECE, Associate Editor of the EURASIP Journal on Speech, Audio, and Music Processing, ASMP, and Associate Editor of the EURASIP Research Letters in Signal Processing, RLSP. I was Vice-Chairman of the Cost Action 2103: "Advanced Voice Function Assessment", VOICE (2007-2011), member of the IEEE Speech and Language Technical Committee (2006-2010), Associate Editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters (1999-2002) and on the Management Committee for the COST Action 277: "Nonlinear Speech Processing". Among other projects, in FP6 I participated in the SIMILAR Network of Excellence coordinating the task on the fusion of speech and handwriting modalities and in FP7, I participate in FET-OPEN project LISTA (Listening Talker) working on active speech modification algorithms. I hold 9 US patents, have (co-)authored more than 100 scientific publications, which have received more than 1600 citations (excluding self-citations) with H-index=20.
I am a member of IEEE, of ISCA, and of the Technical Chamber of Greece, TEE.

My current research focuses on speech signal processing algorithms for speech analysis, statistical signal processing (detection and estimation), and time-series analysis/modeling. I enjoy to work with speech and voice signals, music, and sounds produced by marine mammals.

    Notes :

    Please note that audio files are imbedded into the pdf files; this is why the size of files is big.

    I have not find (so far) a way to enumerate the references; instead I have used my pencil to show the numbers. However, each reference corresponds to the number used in the slides: the 3rd listed reference corresponds to the one indicated as [3] in the slides, the 16th corresponds to the [16], etc.
