About me

  • Quick Learner: After changing from video processing in Master study to audio processing during my Ph.D. time, I quickly fit in this new research area. All knowledge learned from my master time is well used for my Ph.D. project.
  • Diligent and Independent: I have been prolific in writing papers in my Ph.D. time, which can be well reflected by my publication list. Meanwhile, I am now capable of working independently including writing and publishing papers. 
  • Highly Motivated: During my Ph.D. study, I have been proactive in not only publishing papers but also seeking external funding. In 2015, I successfully received a grant from Wet Tropic Management Authority to support my research.
