Letizia Marchegiani

/Letizia Marchegiani

Letizia joined the Oxford Robotics Institute in April 2014 as a postdoctoral researcher.

Research

At the moment, her research focuses on:

      • Auditory Perception
      • Machine Listening
      • Driver Behaviour Modelling
      • Intelligent Energy Management in Electric Vehicles
      • Energy-efficient Planning

Her previous work mainly concerns speech processing and cognitive modelling of auditory attention for robotics applications.

Bio

Letizia holds a BEng in Computer Engineering, a MSc in Computer Engineering with specialisation in Artificial Intelligence and a PhD degree in Computing Science and Engineering from Sapienza – University of Rome.

For her PhD studies, she carried out a joint research project, as a member of the Vision, Perception and Cognitive Robotics Laboratory (ALCOR) of the Department of Computer and System Sciences in Sapienza – University of Rome and of the Cognitive Systems Group of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) .

She was also associated with the INSPIRE (Investigating Speech Processing In Realistic Environments) Initial Training Network as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Research Fellow and worked, as a visiting researcher, in the Centre for Applied Hearing Research of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) .
