I’m a research scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) since 2018. My research interests lie in deep learning, speech, and natural language processing. Before joining FAIR I worked at Amazon Alexa and Microsoft Research. I received my PhD from the CS department at the University of Toronto working with Gerald Penn and Geoffrey Hinton. My paper “Convolutional Neural Networks for Speech Recognition” received the IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper Award for 2016.
