Hello, My name is Chanwoo Kim and I am currently a senior software engineer at Google Speech. Please refer to my profile at Google Research Page. I obtained my Ph. D. in Dec. 2010. I was a Ph. D. student in the Langauge Technologies Institue, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. I'm a member of the Robust Speech Recognition Group, which is a part of CMU Speech. My advisor is Professor Richard M. Stern.


Chanwoo Kim recevied his Ph. D. degree from Language Technologies Institute, School of Computer Science, at Carnegie Mellon University. He received his B.S and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University in 1998 and 2001, respectively. Chanwoo Kim's doctoral research is focused on enhancing the robustness of automatic speech recognition systems in noisy environments. He has developed a number of different algorithms for single-microphone applications, dual-microphone applications, and multiple-microphone applications. His algorithms have been used in various projects for real-world applications.
