I am a Ph.D. student at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), working with Karen Livescu. My research interests cover speech and NLP. Recently, I am particularly interested in the development, analysis, and application of self-supervised representations.
Before joining TTIC, I received my Master’s degree in Computer Science at National Taiwan University (NTU) under the supervision of Lin-shan Lee and Hung-yi Lee in the Speech Processing Lab. I also joined the TTS Research Group of Amazon Alexa in Cambridge, UK, as a science intern in the autumn of 2021.
Aside from being a researcher, I am a sports enthusiasts and an amateur athlete. I captained the baseball varsity team of NTU during my undergraduate years, and I am also broadly interested in tennis, hiking, scuba diving, marathon, swimming, badminton, and training!
