Dominique Estival – Research


After receiving my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania, I worked at the interface of industry and academic research in three main strands within Natural Language Processing: Machine Translation, Grammar Formalisms for Language Processing, and Dialogue Systems (see below for more details).


In 2010, I joined MARCS at Western Sydney University, where I have been managing AusTalk, a large speech data collection project (see the SBS News program) and Alveo, a Human Communication Virtual Laboratory (see the video), as well as other research projects in Speech and Language Processing.
