    About

    Erik Marchi received his M.Sc. degree (cum laude) in electronic engineering in 2011 from Università Politecnica delle Marche. He is currently working towards his PhD degree as a researcher in the Machine Intelligence and Signal Processing Group at the Institute for Human-Machine Communication of Technische Universtität München, one of Germany's Excellence Universities. His research focuses on affective computing, speech recognition and music information retrieval. His further area of involvement is the EU-FP7 project ASC-Inclusion that aims to build a internet-based platform that teaches children with autism how to recognise and express emotion. In the scope of this project, he leads the development of an on-line speech feature extractor with visual output that functions as vocal expression evaluation system providing corrective feedback.
