Odette Scharenborg

Odette Scharenborg is an Associate Professor and Delft Technology Fellow at the Multimedia Computing Group at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, working on human speech-processing inspired automatic speech processing. She has an interest in anything and everything speech, human and automatic speech processing, non-nativeness, under-resourced languages, background noise, emotion, and preferably combinations of these. She uses different research techniques ranging from human listening experiments, eye-tracking, EEG, and computational modelling to deep neural networks.

Odette Scharenborg holds an MA in automatic speech recognition and a PhD in automatic and human speech processing from Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
