I am a PhD student in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at The University of British Columbia, advised by Sidney Fels and Victor Zappi. And, I am affiliated with HCT Lab. My research interests lie in articulatory speech synthesis and neural control of speech synthesizer for speech production task. Currently, I am modelling a physics-based human vocal tract that could help in designing real-time articulatory speech synthesizers. To know more about my research, check out my publications.
I completed MASc (Master in applied science) from UBC Vancouver in 2021 with a major in Electrical and Computer Engineering. My master thesis is on introducing a novel computational vocal tract model that improves the exising low-dimensional models, supervised by Sidney Fels.
Outside of research, I love running and photography. Occasionally, I write in Odia.
