I am a fourth-year PhD student at the Carnegie Mellon University's Human-Computer Interaction Institute. My current research is at the intersection of speech recognition and human-computer interaction, and I use techniques from machine learning, quantitative statistical analysis and iterative development in my research. My primary advisor is Florian Metze, and I'm co-advised by Matthew Kam.
I've completed two fantastic summer internships at Microsoft Research (Redmond) and IBM Almaden Research Center (San Jose). At Microsoft, I worked with Tim Paek and Bongshin Lee on a novel speech-based text-input technique called "Voice Typing". See more details in our CHI 2012 paper. At IBM, I worked with Barton Smith and Chris Kau on an iPhone application to facilitate everyday social introductions between strangers. Currently, we have a patent and a publication under review on this!
In a previous life, I worked on mobile educational technologies for developing regions, where I developed over 10 games for the Nokia smartphones and Motorola feature phones. This experience lends me a strong learning science and behavioral science background, as well as, a great experience in developing deployable applications for mobile devices.
