Introducing myself
My name is Igor Odriozola Sustaeta. I am from the Basque Country, born and grown along the Deba river and close to the Bay of Biscay, just in the linguistic border between the central and western Basque dialects.

I worked as a Basque language teacher in aek (1995 - 2007) and as a translator for Elhuyar (2005 - 2008), and I received my Telecommunication Engineering Degree from UPV/EHU in 2007. During my end-of-degree project, supervised by Inma Hernaez, I worked on how to cope with dialectal variations of Basque in speech recognition. In 2008 I got my master degree in "Language Analysis and Processing" from UPV/EHU.

Nowadays I work in AhoLab, the lab. led by Inma Hernaez at UPV/EHU, Bilbao. I work in the field of speech recognition, where my two big passions join: linguistics and engineering. My work is mainly focused on developing tools for Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) systems, and I am developing my PhD in this field.

As some examples of my work, some research, publications and on-line demos can be found in this site.
