I am currently acting as a professor of general phonetics at the Department of Speech Sciences at the University of Helsinki (HU).  I also hold an adjunct professorship in language technology at the Department of General Linguistics of HU.  Please, see the Rearch and Publication pages for my professional accomplishments and aims.
 
You can hear a podcast with our latest HMM-based Concept/Text-to-Speech synthesizer here.   An earlier diphone based synthesis can be found here.
