I have graduated from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), MIT and now work in a startup company. I received my B.E. in Computer Science from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2006. Then, I joined Speech Group at Microsoft Research Asia as a visiting scholar. In the fall of 2007, I joined Spoken Language Systems Group as a Ph.D. student. My advisor is Dr. James Glass.
