Ann Thyme-Gobbel

Head of UX Research and Design
Sound United

While doing a PhD in Cognitive Science and Linguistics at UCSD, Ann's interest in phonetics and NLP led to a dissertation using neural networks to model how speakers of a language form new words via paradigm patterning and token analogy. After that, Ann did R&D and product development in conversational speech recognition, including discourse analysis and prosody-based language identification. She spent 12 years at Nuance in user-centered design, analysis and user testing of IVRs and in-car interfaces. At Amazon Lab 126, Ann focused on incorporating speech into the design of interactive devices.
