Junichi Yamagishi is an associate professor of National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Japan. He is also a lecturer and holds an EP-SRC Career Acceleration Fellowship in the Centre for Speech Technology Research (CSTR) at the University of Edinburgh. He was awarded a Ph.D. by Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2006 for a thesis that pioneered speaker-adaptive speech synthesis and was awarded the Tejima Prize as the best Ph.D. thesis of Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2007. Since 2006, he has been in CSTR and has authored and co-authored about 100 refereed papers in international journals and conferences. His work has led directly to three large-scale EC FP7 projects and two collaborations based around clinical applications of this technology.

A recent coauthored paper was awarded the 2010 IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Student Paper Award and cited as a “landmark achievement of speech synthesis.” He was awarded the Itakura Prize (Innovative Young Researchers Prize) from the Acoustic Society of Japan for his achievements in adaptive speech synthesis.

In 2012 he was an area chair for the Interspeech conference and elected to membership of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Speech & Language Technical Committee.

He is an external member of the Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone Disease Research and a visiting associate professor of Nagoya Institute of Technology, Speech Processing Laboratory.
