Brief Bio:

Dr. Elizabeth Shriberg is a Senior Research Scientist in the Speech Technology and Research Laboratory at SRI International. Her main interest is the computational modeling of spontaneous speech. Her work aims to combine linguistic knowledge with corpora and techniques from speech and speaker recognition, to advance both scientific understanding and spoken language technology. She is also an External Fellow with the Speech Group at the International Computer Science Institute (Berkeley, CA) and an Adjunct Associate Professor with CASL (U. Maryland). From 2011-mid 2013 she was a Principal Scientist at Microsoft Research, in the Conversational Systems Research Center (CSRC) in Silicon Valley. From 1990-2011 she was a Senior Research Psycholinguist at SRI. She received a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from U.C. Berkeley (1994) and was an NSF-NATO postdoc at the Instituut voor Perceptie Onderzoek (Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 1995).

Dr. Shriberg has published over 200 journal and conference papers in speech science, speech technology, and related fields. She serves or has served as Associate Editor of Language and Speech, on the boards of Speech Communication, Computational Linguistics, and other journals; on international conference, workshop, and science foundation boards; and as a co-organizer of workshops on spontaneous speech. In 2009 she was elected Fellow of the International Speech Communication Association. In 2010 she became a Fellow of SRI International.

Research Interests:

Modeling spontaneous conversation, automatic modeling of prosody, higher-level features for automatic speaker recognition, speaker state characterization, emotion recognition, dialog modeling, modeling speech disfluencies, deception detection from speech, addressee detection from speech, speaker health modeling.
