My Background

I've been a researcher at IBM since 1999. Before that, I was working on my PhD in computer science at the International Computer Science Institute and the University of California, Berkeley. I earned my undergraduate degree in electrical engineering at Michigan State University.

Things I Do

I do research on machine learning, large vocabulary speech recognition, and audio indexing, with a focus on acoustic modeling and robustness. Most recently I've focused on neural networks and deep learning. From 2012 through 2016 I was technical lead for the LORELEI consortium: an IBM-led group working on the IARPA Babel program. You can find an up-to-date publications list on my Google Scholar profile.

In early February I participated in a workshop at the MIT Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines on speech representation, perception, and recognition.  Videos of the workshop talks will be available on-line.

I am helping put together a special issue of the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing on End-to-End Speech and Language Processing.
