Elliot Holmes


I came to Leeds in 2021 as a Tutor in Phonetics following a BA in English Language and Linguistics at the Univerisity of Leeds, an MScR in Linguistics at the University of Edinburgh, and a PhD in Linguistics at the University of York. I have been a Teaching Fellow since 2022. 

Research interests

My research interests are in Phonetics, specifically from a Forensic and Computational perspective. My current research focuses on the reliability of Automatic Speaker Recognition and how Phonetics can improve this to benefit Forensic audiences, specifically by making the process of automatically identifying an offender from suspects based on voice data more reliable, and commercial audiences, specifically by making voice biometrics more reliable for use with online banking.
