Who Am I?

I am a researcher at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. My research interests include automatic speech recognition, applications of automatic speech recognition, and topics that might help me better do automatic speech recognition research. In my spare time, I do research on automatic speech recognition, and collect automatic speech recognition-related action figurines.

I am also an adjunct professor at Columbia University, which is how I was able to score this cool URL. I teach a course on automatic speech recognition along with some of my colleagues at IBM, which include Michael Picheny, Ellen Eide, Harriet Nock, and Bhuvana Ramabhadran, all of whom I have the utmost respect for.

There are those of you who might notice my E-mail address in plain text above and say to yourselves, "Aren't you just asking for lots of spam?" To this I say: some of us must step forward with our E-mail addresses so that spammers have somebody to send spam to, so that others may receive less spam.
