I joined
UTD Computer Science Department in the Fall of 2005.
I am part of the
Human Language Technology Research Institute,
and the Center for Robust Speech Systems.

I am also an affiliated faculty in the department of Electrical Engineering.

My research interest is in human language processing (that includes both speech and written text!).

o    Speech recognition and understanding, spoken language processing

o    Natural language processing (summarization, sentiment analysis)

o    Speech/language disorder, clinical applications

o    Emotion recognition

o    Social media analysis

o    Machine learning in speech/language processing

For prospective students/PostDoc:

Please email me your CV if you are interested in speech and language processing research (speech recognition,
speech understanding, spoken dialog systems, information extraction, summarization, statistical learning techniques
in these applications, etc.).
