PhD examining the Application of Linguistic Models in Continuous
Speech Recognition in 1994 from the same institution. From 1993-96
he was a member of the Speech,
Vision and Robotics Group, Department of Engineering and Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, working as a
Research Associate on the Video Mail
Retrieval using Voice (VMR) project. From 1996-2003 he was a
Lecturer in Media Computing in the Department of Computer Science at
the University of Exeter. From
1997-98 he was a Toshiba
Fellow and engineer at the Toshiba Corporation Research and Development
Centre in Kawasaki, Japan. In 2002 he was a Visiting Scientist to

multimedia access benchmarking initiative
MediaEval is a benchmarking initiative to promote research and innovation on multimodel approaches to multimedia access and retrieval. We aim to focus on novel and innovative tasks integrating various combinations of speech, language, social and visual features. MediaEval builds on work initiated wthin the CLEF workshop series.
