I am a fresh-grad student in the department of CS at URochester.
Now I am working as a full-time intern in Speech Group of Microsoft Research Asia, co-advised by Frank Soong and Lijuan Wang. My research focus is Offline Handwriting Recognition using sequential modelling techniques, like Hidden Markov Model & Recurrennt Neural Network. I have also worked on Audio Visual Speech Recognition project in MSRA when I was an undergraduate student in HIT.
My research interests now is in HCI, with a side interest in AI.
Except research related with speech and handwriting recognition, I am also very interested in Human Computer Interaction and Data Visualization. I have worked several times with HCI guys of MSRA, in their user studies.
As a "so-called" geek, I love all kinds of programming and hacking. One of my goals is to be "a programmer who knows the theories".
