  • I am co-organizing an Interspeech 2024 Special Session Responsible Speech Foundation Models.
  • Research Interest

    AI for Audio, Speech, and Natural Lanaguage Processing, including the following topics: large language models, foundation audio and speech AI models, audio-visual multi-modal AI, speech AI system for health applications, and secure and trustworthy speech AI.


    I am a Research Scientist at the MIT CSAIL Spoken Language Systems Group (SLS), working with Dr. James Glass. Before I joined MIT, I got my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Notre Dame, supervised by Dr. Christian Poellabauer. During the 2019 Summer, I was an applied scientist intern working on clinical text mining in the AWS Comprehend Medical team, supervised by Mohammed Khalilia and Parminder Bhatia. Before coming to Notre Dame, I got my B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Biomedical Engineering Major) from Fudan University in 2015. My research advisors were Dr. Yuanyuan Wang (on ultrasound image denoising) and Dr. Yuedong Xu (on network science).
