Our research in forensic speech science has a major focus on the combination of advanced linguistic expertise in phonetics and sociophonetics with cutting-edge technology used in speaker recognition.

We are engaged in several funded projects, many in collaboration with partners outside York, including Nuance and Aculab

Our current work focuses on:

  • speaker comparison
  • exploring the complementarity of linguistic analysis and automatic speaker recognition
  • language analysis in the asylum process
  • understanding ear-witness performance
