I'm a research scientist at Facebook AI research (FAIR) in Seattle, WA. Before FAIR, I was a principal scientist manager in Amazon Alexa AI team. From 2014 to 2017, I was a researcher in Microsoft Research (MSR) Redmond. I received my PhD from the University of Toronto working with Gerald Penn and Geoffrey Hinton where I was part of the team that started the Deep Learning revolution in Spoken Language Processing in 2009. I received the IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Journal Paper Award in 2016. My research interests span Deep Learning, Spoken Language Processing, and Natural Language Understanding.
