About me

My research interests center on technical aspects of voice acoustics, especially singing. This includes researching measurements of voice, usually for clinical purposes, and implementing them in practical forms. In particular I am fond of trying to synthesize singing! Lately, my hot topics have been how to address the methodological challenges of the great variability in voices; and analyses of the electroglottogram. I also like to stay current with acoustics and sound processing for music and audio, and teach several courses on those topics. My PhD thesis was on the acoustics of choir singing, and this has been a sporadically recurring theme, especially in my outreach activities.

I have been P.I. in numerous research projects, mostly on the human voice, including Project Coordinator for FP7 Eunison and site coordinator for FP7 SkAT-VG.

I received my MScEE in 1982, PhD in 1989 and became professor in 2003, all at KTH.
