  About Me:

I started my Phd study in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Johns Hopkins University in 2009 under supervision of the dearly departed Frederick Jelinek. Currently I have the pleasure of working with Bruno Jedynak as my research advisor.

My main research interest is deep understanding of the Deep Neural Network (DNN)! In addition, I am working on the applications of the DNN for speech, speaker, and image recognition.
