Professori
T405 Dept. Signal Processing and Acoustics

Paavo Alku received his M.Sc., Lic.Tech., and Dr.Sc.(Tech) degrees from Helsinki University of Technology, Espoo, Finland, in 1986, 1988, and 1992, respectively. He was an assistant professor at the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand, in 1993, and an assistant professor and professor at the University of Turku, Finland, from 1994 to 1999. He is currently a professor of speech communication technology at Aalto University, Espoo, Finland. His research interests include analysis and parameterization of speech production, statistical parametric speech synthesis, spectral modelling of speech, speech-based biomarking of human health, and cerebral processing of speech. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles and more than 200 peer-reviewed conference papers. He is an Associate Editor of J. Acoust. Soc. Am. He served as an Academy Professor assigned by the Academy of Finland in 2015-2019. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of ISCA.
