Muhammad Umar Farooq
I am a doctoral student working on multilingual speech recognition systems at VoiceBase center. I received my masters and bachelors degrees in electrical engineering from University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore in 2019 and 2017 respectively. Before enrolling for my Ph.D., I was a pre-doc research intern at Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics (UFAL), Charles University, Prague where I primarily worked on speech related components of European Live Translator (ELITR). Prior to joining the UFAL, I have been working as speech processing Research Officer at Center for Language Engineering (CLE), UET, Lahore. I joined CLE during my senior year as a speech scientist to develop low resource language technologies.
