Description 

Professor Carol Espy-Wilson (ECE/ISR) is the principal investigator for a two-year, $600,000 National Science Foundation Collaborative Research award, “Multilingual Gestural Models for Robust Language-Independent Speech Recognition.” This multi-site grant includes researchers at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Boston University and Haskins Laboratories. Espy-Wilson’s former student Vikramjit Mitra (EE Ph.D. 2011) is the principal investigator on the portion of the grant going to SRI.
