I am a Research Scientist at Google Speech team. Before the full-time position, I was a part-time student researcher at Google Brain. I am interested in language-related technologies in general, and my main research interest is multilingual speech recognition.
I obtained my PhD from the Language Technologies Institute of School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I was advised by Shinji Watanabe, Alan W Black, Florian Metze and David R. Mortensen and Patrick Littell.
Prior to CMU, I was working on Input Method Editors (IME) for East Asian languages (中文输入法，日本語入力) at Microsoft Japan as a full-time Software Engineer. Before that, I graduated from the University of Tokyo (理学部情報科学科、コンピュータ科学専攻) supervised by Aizawa Akiko.
