About

I first joined Microsoft in 2000 as a software design engineer in the speech recognition product group.  Intrigued by the challenges of bringing cutting edge technology from research to consumer products, I moved to MIT in 2004 to pursue a Ph.D. in speech recognition and natural language processing and learn about technology transfer challenges from a research perspective.  Since returning to Microsoft in 2009 as a researcher in the Internet Services Research Center, I have been working with various product groups in Bing to improve the overall user experience through research technologies.
