Ph.D. in Linguistics and Scientific Computing, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
I am primarily interested in spoken language processing, natural language processing and computational social science, with a focus on unsupervised/semi-supervised methods for speech segmentation/alignment, multilingual speech processing, spoken information retrieval and the language dynamics in online communities. Trained as both a linguist and an engineer, I combine linguistic theories with data-driven methods in NLP, network science and machine learning.
Before that, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at Blablablab, UMSI. I had obtained my Ph.D. in Linguistics and Scientific Computing from the Department Linguistics and the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery & Engineering at University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. During my Ph.D. years, I was fortunately advised by Pam Beddor and David Jurgens.
