I am interested in enabling machines to learn from multiple modalities of data like text, audio, video, semantics as humans naturally do.

Ongoing Research

  • End-to-End and Multimodal Speech Recognition
    Building robust direct acoustic-to-word models for audio-only and audio-visual data

  • Multimodal Video Understanding
    Exploring video summarization and understanding to identify differences and similarities in two similar videos. Generalizing abstractive summarization for open-domain videos using the How2 dataset.

  • Dialog Summarization for Doctor-Patient Conversations
    Abstractive dialog summarization for medical conversations to generate Subjective, Objective, Assessment and Plan notes.
