Personal profile

Biography

Erica began working at the University of Huddersfield in 2014, and is currently a Reader in Forensic Speech Science. Erica completed a BA in Linguistics at the University of California San Diego. She then came to the UK to pursue her interests in Forensic Speech Science, and completed an MSc and PhD at the University of York in Forensic Speech Science. Her PhD was supported by a Marie Curie Early Stage Research Fellowship with the Bayesian Biometrics for Forensics Training Network (under the FP7 Framework). Erica’s PhD was supervised by Professor Peter French, one of the world’s leading experts in Forensic Phonetics, and looked at the calculation of likelihood ratios in forensic speaker comparisons using phonetic and linguistic parameters.

Erica has published and presented internationally, she has been invited to speak to government bodies about her work (Brazil, Netherlands, and the UK), and her research has also been cited in court cases in the USA, UK, and Australia.
