Dr Chris Newell
I am an academic and an opera director with an interest in the artificial and human voice. I am based at the University of Hull. I am also a visiting researcher at The University of York. My research is interdisciplinary but falls broadly into two camps – 1) the work I do with the scientific community on artificial speech -2) the work I do with the artistic community on opera. My ambition is to not have to make this distinction. In the meantime I have organised this site into these two broad categories of activity but there is a lot of crossover.
