The Speech and Signal Processing activity in LEMS is essentially the research area of interest for Professor Harvey Silverman, with some substantial collaborations with William Patterson. Professor Silverman has graduated 24 PhD’s in his 29-year tenure at Brown and currently has a group of four PhD students. After much work in the areas of speech recognition and hardware for speech processing, reconfigurable and parallel computing and microphone array research, the current activity is focused on addressing many of the problems associated with real environments using large-aperture microphone arrays. There is also work in the embedded signal-processing systems area. Professor Silverman has been a strong supporter of undergraduate research experiences and has been the mentor for a large number of independent studies projects and Honors’ these over the years.
