Hi, welcome to Yun-Nung (Vivian)'s website! Reach me at:

Currently I am a Ph.D. student in Language Technologies Institute of School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Alexander I. Rudnicky. I also received my M.S. in Language Technologies from CMU in 2013, and hold a M.S. and a B.S. in Computer Science and Information Engineering from National Taiwan University, where I am a member of NTU Digital Speech Processing Lab under supervision of Prof. Lin-Shan Lee in 2008.

My research interests focus on spoken dialogue system, spoken language understanding, multimodel speech application, speech summarization, key term extraction, and spoken term detection. I received Best Student Paper Awards at IEEE ASRU 2013 and IEEE SLT 2010, and a Best Student Paper Nominee at INTERSPEECH 2012. (See my presentation at award talk of SLT 2010...) Besides, I regularly publish papers at speech conferences such as INTERSPEECH, NAACL-HLT, ICASSP, SLT, and ASRU.
