Jinyu Li

I received the Ph.D. degree from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 2008. From 2000 to 2003, he was a Researcher in the Intel China Research Center and Research Manager in iFlytek Speech, China. I joined Microsoft in 2008 and now lead a team to design and improve speech modeling algorithms and technologies that ensure industry state-of-the-art speech recognition accuracy for Microsoft products. My major research interests cover several topics in speech recognition, including noise robustness, discriminative training, feature extraction, and machine learning methods.
