Lab Leader

Kai Yu

Kai Yu entered the Department of Automation at Tsinghua University, P.R.China in 1994. After obtaining B.Eng. in 1999, he continued his study for M.Sc. in the State Key Laboratory of Pattern Recognition and Intelligence Systems in the same department untill 2002. He then joined the Machine Intelligence Laboratory (MIL) (formerly the Speech Vision and Robotics (SVR) group), where he obtained his PhD in 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Mark Gales. He worked as a research associate, and later senior research associate in MIL until 2012 with Prof. Phil. Woodland and Prof. Steve Young. He is now a research professor at Computer Science and Engineering Department, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He is a senior member of IEEE, a member of ISCA. He serves as a member of the IEEE Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee. He is also a member of the technical committee of Language, Auditory and Music Branch of the acoustic society of China, and a member of the technical committee of the Speech Technology Industry Union. He was selected into the Programme for Professor of Special Appointment (Eastern Scholar) at Shanghai Institutions of Higher Learning.

Mengyue Wu

Mengyue Wu is currently a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. She received her PhD in Phonetcis and Psycholinguistics from the University of Melbourne, Australia in 2017 and Dual Bachelor's Degrees in Linguistics and Education (Psychology branch) from Beijing Normal University in 2011. She once worked in the State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning during undergraduate study and the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development during PhD. Her research interests include speech perception and production, multimodal speech processing, and speech synthesis evaluation. Her work has been published in major conferences and journals such as Speech Prosody, ICPhS, Speech Science and Technology and Language Sciences.

Lu Chen

Lu Chen is currently a Research Assistant Professor. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 2020. Before coming to SJTU, he received a Bachelor degree from Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST) in 2013. His research interests include dialogue systems, natural language processing, reinforcement learning, deep learning. The goal of his research is to build evolvable and universal conversational agents, which can converse with humans among many domains and improve their performance with various signals. He has authored/co-authored more than 30 journal articles (e.g. IEEE/ACM transactions) and peer-reviewed conference papers (e.g. ACL, EMNLP, AAAI, COLING, ICASSP), one of them was selected as COLING2018 Area Chair Favorites.

Xie Chen

Xie Chen is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. He obtained his Bachelor degree in Electronic Engineering department from Xiamen University in 2009, Master degree in the Electronic Engineering department from Tsinghua University in 2012 and PhD degree in the information engineering department in Cambridge University (U.K.) in 2017. Prior to joining SJTU, he worked in Cambridge University as a Research Associate from 2017 to 2018, and the speech and language research group in Microsoft as a researcher form 2018 to 2021. His main research interest lies in deep learning, especially its application on speech processing, including speech recognition and synthesis.

Wenbin Jiang

Wenbin Jiang is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. He received his PhD in Information and Communication Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2018. His research interests include speech separation and speech enhancement.
