Bio

From 2000 onwards, Barbara Schuppler studied Physics and Spanish Philology at the Karl-Franzens University of Graz and at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. She pursued the experiments for her diploma thesis at the group 'Magnetometry and Photonics' (Department of Experimental Physics) and graduated in 2007. In that same year, she received a Marie Curie Grant for a PhD position at the Centre for Language and Speech Technology at the Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands). In 2009 and 2010, Barbara Schuppler spent several months as a visiting researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. Being part of the Research Training Network Sound to Sense gave her the chance to receive and contribute to interdisciplinary training at and with fourteen project partners from eleven countries. After teaching Physics and Spanish at the Graz International Bilingual School,  she returned to research with a FWF funded Hertha-Firnberg Grant entitled 'Cross-layer pronunciation modeling for conversational speech'. 

Research Interests

Her research interests include the development of automatic tools for the study of pronunciation variation, the study of phonetic detail in spontaneous, conversational speech and the integration of phonetic and linguistic knowledge into ASR technology.
