Antonio Bonafonte joined Amazon TTS Research in January 2019 as Senior Researcher. The team leads the research and innovation that defines the future of Amazon Alexa and AWS Polly voices. Previously, he worked for over 25 years as Associated Professor at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, leading the TTS Research Group. Most of his career has been focussed on speech synthesis, co-authoring around 200 technical papers, and participating or leading more than 50 national or international research projects. Some of the produced technology has been included in widely available products, as the Festival Catalan voices in debian repositories, the upcTV (Catalan Educative Program) and the pioneer TaP, distributed in the 90s by CEAPAT/IMSERSO.
