CV: pdf (Last update: December 2018)

I have been a PhD candidate at Sokendai/National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan since 2017. My study mainly involves Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition. I'm interested in Speech Processing, Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing in general.

I also do programming and drawing as hobbies. More below.
