Dr Philip Jackson is Senior Lecturer in speech and audio processing at the Centre for Vision, Speech & Signal Processing (University of Surrey, UK) which he joined as Lecturer in November 2002, with MA in Engineering (Cambridge University, UK) and PhD in Electronic Engineering (University of Southampton, UK). Together with Dr Wenwu Wang in CVSSP, he leads the Machine Audition Group of a dozen research fellows and students. His research in audio and speech processing has contributed to projects (e.g., BALTHASAR, DANSA, Dynamic Faces, QESTRAL, UDRC and POSZ) in active noise control for aircraft, acoustics of speech production, source separation for automatic speech recognition (ASR), use of articulatory models for ASR, audio-visual processing for speech enhancement and visual speech synthesis, and spatial aspects of subjective sound quality evaluation. He has over 100 publications in high-quality academic journals, conference proceedings and books. He reviews for journals and conferences such as Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech & Language Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, InterSpeech and ICASSP, and is associate editor for Computer Speech & Language (Elsevier).
