Hi, I'm Candy! I am an assistant professor at School of Information Science, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST). My primary research interests are speech signal processing, machine learning, and social signal processing (SSP). My Ph.D. thesis focuses on privacy preservation and secure speech communication. In addition to primary research, I also carried out a research project on personality traits and communication skills modeling with Prof. Shogo Okada. I obtained my Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Information Science, JAIST, advised by Prof. Masashi Unoki.
Research interests: speech information hiding, voice privacy, social signal processing, and machine learning.
Our paper Personality Trait Estimation in Group Discussions using Multimodal Analysis and Speaker Embedding has been accepted for publication in Journal on Multimodal User Interfaces.
We are glad to welcome four faculty members and ten students from UI and ITB (Indonesia) to JAIST (5--25 January 2023). They participate in the JST Sakura Science Program.
One student from Okada laboratory (Shun Katada) has completed his Ph.D course and obtained the Outstanding Performance Award from School of Information Science. Many congratulations!
We presented our work at the The 18th Australasian International Conference on Speech Science and Technology (SST 2022), Canberra, Australia.
We presented our work at the The 21st International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM 2022), Lisbon, Portugal.
