Biography

Jessica is a PhD researcher in Music at Christ’s College, Cambridge University.

Her research investigates the cultural histories of voice imitation, synthesis and identification technologies by exploring the discourses surrounding the emergence of various voice-related technologies such as 18th-century speaking machines, speech spectrograms and machine learning-aided vocal 'revivals'.

Before coming to Cambridge, Jessica studied Musicology and Composition at the University of Edinburgh's Reid School of Music, where she was awarded the Bucher Fraser Scholarship. Her compositions have been performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, in Europe and North America.

Jessica's research is funded by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Scottish International Education Trust.
