Namaskara! I'm a Post Doc Researcher at Microsoft Research India in Bangalore, India, where I work on Speech Processing for Multilingual Communities. In particular, I work on Speech Synthesis and Recognition of Code Mixed languages under Project Melange. I also maintain the Project Melange blog, Poco Mix Maadi, where our group and others regularly post articles related to multilingualism and code-mixing.
Previously, I was a PhD student in the Language Technologies Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. I worked on Text-to-Speech systems with my advisor Alan W Black, and my thesis was on pronunciation modeling for low-resource languages.
I am part of the organizing committee for the International Linguistics Olympiad that we are hosting in Mysore this year. In addition to work, I love to crochet and go to coffee shops.
