Dr. Elliot Moore II received his bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1998, 1999, and 2003, respectively. His thesis work pertained to the study and application of speech analysis techniques in the classification and recognition of stress and emotion. In particular, his dissertation presented an in-depth analysis of objectively measurable features of speech that were useable in creating patterns of separation between normal voices and those exhibiting the emotional disorder of clinical depression.
After working in a post-doctorate position for about a year, Dr. Moore joined Georgia Tech as an assistant professor in the fall of 2004 and was appointed as the School's associate chair for Undergraduate Affairs in August 2017. He continues his research in using digital speech processing theory and analysis in the classification of human vocal patterns for determining speaker demographics (i.e., dialect, language, etc.), speaker characteristics (i.e., gender, dimensions, etc.), and speaker state (i.e., emotion, stress, etc.).
