Candy Olivia Mawalim

Assistant Professor, JAIST, Japan

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.

I am truly honored to have been given the opportunity to deliver a lecture on Voice Biometrics and Secure Speech Communication in the IF4071 Speech Processing course at the School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia.

OCT 19, 2023

I had the privilege of presenting on 'Advancements in Speech Signal Processing for Security and Voice Privacy Protection' at the Speech and Hearing Research Group (SpandH) and CDT seminar held in the Ada Lovelace Room, Regent Court, University of Sheffield. Despite the briefness of my research visit, I gained valuable insights and knowledge, thanks to the guidance of Prof. Jon Barker and the welcoming atmosphere provided by my colleagues at the SpandH laboratory.
