I am a Visiting Research Scientist in the Speech & Audio group led by Dr. Jonathan Le Roux at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As part of that team, I conduct original research aiming to advance the state-of-the-art in the fields robust acquisition, recognition, and understanding of speech and audio.
