Sérgio Ferreira Paulo

Sérgio Paulo graduated in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2001 from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon. Then, he joined the Spoken Language Systems Labs of INESC-ID for a PhD on "Automatic Methods for Building Speech Synthesis Corpora", during which he was involved in several national and international research projects. In 2009, he received a Doutor degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from IST of the Technical University of Lisbon. His research interests span from optimal corpus design to automatic phonetic segmentation, with a strong emphasis on pronunciation modeling, applied to speech synthesis.
