I am an engineer interested specifically in speech and vision science and its applications to machine intelligence and more generally, understanding how brain-body systems work and reason with information. A common theme in my work is to apply scientific knowledge to inform technology development, and in turn harness the power of engineering to broaden the horizons of our scientific understanding. I am currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Southern California where I work with an interdisciplinary group of researchers to explore the cognitive and technological aspects of speech science. My principal advisor is Dr. Shrikanth Narayanan.
This video gives a brief overview of part of my thesis work. This “research pitch” won top honors at the 3rd annual Ming Hsieh Institute Research Festival.
