About Me

I’m an Associate Professor in the Computing Department at Macquarie University, affiliated with the Centre for Language Technology.

Until the end of 2001 I was with the Speech Hearing and Language Research Centre which is part of the Linguistics Department here. My research interests are in linguistic annotation, XML, speech technology systems and acoustic phonetics (here’s my CV).

I’m now living with my family in Sydney, Australia. I was born in Sheffield, England and I’ve lived at various times in Edinburgh, Cambridge and Wellington, New Zealand.

When I’m not being an academic, I’m riding my bike, fiddling with electronics or just busying myself with my family.
