Zhong Meng

Senior Applied Scientist


I am a Senior Applied Scientist in Microsoft Speech and Language Group. I received my M.S. and Ph.D degrees from the School of Electrical and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in 2014 and 2018, respectively. My current research interests cover multiple areas of automatic speech recognition (ASR) including end-to-end ASR, domain adaptation, adversarial learning, discriminative training, and speech enhancement.
Before joining Microsoft, I worked at AT&T Labs Research, Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs and Microsoft Research as a Research Intern. I contributed to an all-LSTM multichannel ASR system that won the 3rd place at CHiME-4 noise-robust ASR challenge in 2016. My adversarial domain adaptation work was nominated for the Best Paper Award at IEEE Automatic Speech Recognition and Understanding (ASRU) Workshop in 2017. I served as a Session Chair in IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) in 2021.
