Rui Amaral graduated in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC) in 1993 and received his MSc degree in Electrical Engineering from the same University in 1998. He is currently working towards a PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal. He joined the Speech Processing group of INESC in 1997, which in 2001 was restructured as the Spoken Language Systems Lab (L2F) of INESC-ID. His current research interests cover the domain of spoken document retrieval, mainly segmentation and topic indexation algorithms, which are the main issues of his PhD work.
