I am interested in human language technology such as speech recogniton, understanding, synthesis, and various facets of natural language processing.

I have been working on corpus-based speech synthesis these days including additive models aproach to F0 modeling.

Recently I am interested in topics such as on-line adaptation, hands-free (distant talking) speech recognition, and use of prosodic information in speech recognition.

I am also generally interested in:
  • Application of statistical learning/machine learning techniques to speech and language technology, such as speech recognition, synthesis, machine translation.
  • Speech recognition and understanding technology for a listening agent (or robot) that do not require close-talking microphone and push-to-talk button.
  • Various acoustic modeling issues for speech recognition.
