I am currently doing part-time research and other part-time work as a teaching assistant at the University. In the past three years, I have done more than ten teaching assistant/facilitator jobs at the University. My PhD interest is in using the active learning method to improve acoustic models in automatic speech recognition systems. For this, I look into how to use statistical methods to make use of the most errorful data and selectively choose and correct the errorful data to improve the acoustic model’s performance. Apart from teaching and researching, most of my time is spent organising public engagement events and travelling. I have travelled about 30 countries across four continents of the world and I am have enjoyed experiencing a variety of culture and local people’s lives.
