Manuel J. Reyes-Gomez

Ph.D. Student


Hi.  I am a 5th year Ph.D. student at Columbia University in the Laboratory for the Recognition and Organization of Speech and Audio, LabROSA, under the supervision of professor Dan Ellis.  I also collaborate in diverse projects with Nebojsa Jojic at Microsoft Research and with Bhiksha Raj at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL)

!!! I MOVED !!!
I am now at Microsoft Research as a post doctoral researcher in the Machine Learning and Applied Statistics Group, MLAS.
I will be defending my thesis sometime in June. I can still be contacted at my Columbia address. 
My almost none existant (for now) new website at MSR is:
