My focus is on using deep learning for speech and music processing. My recent papers address personalizing speech enhancement systems, but I'm also interested in dereverberation, diarization, and sound classification. So far I've had the chance to work with Google, X, Spotify, and Amazon through summer internships.
Prior to grad school, I did software engineering work for Qualcomm and webmastering work for Yellow Box.
I love opportunities to teach others and have helped to facilitate courses such as Deep Learning Systems (ENGR-E 533), Machine Learning for Signal Proccessing (ENGR-E 511), and The Art of Web Programming (CS 498RK).
Since 2010, I have enjoyed mixing electronic dance music. While in college, I worked as a supporting front-of-house audio engineer for The Canopy Club.
In my spare time, I love watching movies, sharing new music, traveling, and taking candid photographs. I'm a big fan of Dance Dance Revolution too!
