Department of Computer Science and Technology

  • Senior Research Associate


I am currently a senior research associate under Professor Cecilia Mascolo in department of computer sciencec, university of Cambridge. She received the BE and MEngSc degrees in Signal Processing from the Northwestern Polytechnical University, China in 2012 and 2015 respectively. She received the Ph.D. degree under supervision of Dr. Vidhyasaharan Sethu and Professor Eliathamby Ambikairajah from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia in 2018. Her primary research interests include digital signal processing specifically in speech processing, audio based health diagnosis, machine learning techniques, affective computing and computational modelling of cochlear mechanics. Specifically, her work focuses on speech based emotion and mental state recognition and prediction within the field of affective computing, applications of machine learning techniques to speech related tasks, audio-based mobile health diagnositics, and numerical cochlear models integrated with deep learning techniques.
