2018: I left UTD already. Here is my latest CV.
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!).
- Natural language processing (summarization, sentiment analysis, information extraction, classification)
- Speech recognition and understanding, spoken language processing
- Speech and language disorder, clinical applications
- Social media analysis
- Machine learning in language processing
