After receiving her master’s degree in computational linguistics from the University of Tübingen Bela has worked as junior research engineer on audio and speaker search applications at Fraunhofer IAIS in Sankt Augustin. After being dedicated to statistical speech synthesis and statistical modelling of speech research she has turned to media art studies at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, working with speech and voice in sound installations, for example showcased at the Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Festival 2018 in Linz.

Within the project, Bela is researching the possibilities of sonification of the digital reconstruction of the “Eisenstein Cabinet” to support information visualization. She also works on 3D sound modelling and development for the mixed-reality web environment to integrate the VR-experience and information visualization of the platform.
