 Background

I have been a Researcher in the Speech Technology Group at Microsoft Research since October, 2003. I did my graduate work in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, receiving my M.S. in 2000 and my Ph.D. in 2003. While at CMU, I was a member of the Robust Speech Recognition group, led by my advisor Professor Richard Stern. My dissertation research focused on improving recognition accuracy in hands-free environments using microphone arrays. From 1996-1998, I worked at Teradyne, Inc. as an Applications Engineer. Teradyne makes automatic test equipment (ATE) for the semiconductor industry. I received my B.S. at Brown University in 1996. At Brown, I worked in the Laboratory for Engineering Man/Machine Systems (LEMS) with Professor Harvey Silverman on a huge microphone array project that was called, in fact, the Huge Microphone Array.
