I first joined Microsoft in 2000 as a software design engineer in the speech recognition product group. Intrigued by the challenges of bringing cutting edge technology from research to consumer products, I moved to MIT in 2004 to pursue a Ph.D. in speech recognition and natural language processing and learn about technology transfer challenges from a research perspective. Since returning to Microsoft in 2009 as a researcher in the Internet Services Research Center, I have been working with various product groups in Bing to improve the overall user experience through research technologies.
Some of my recent contributions include:
- Compact and efficient system for generating query completions
- Structured query completion suggestion for disambiguation and refinement
- Robust conversion and completion for Chinese pinyin queries
- Compact web-scale n-grams for efficient word breaking
Predictive input methods for query formulation and text entry
- Web-scale language modeling and applications
Robust entity recognition and disambiguation
Efficient data structures and algorithms
Interactive user interfaces
