He is a senior member of IEEE, a member of ISCA and the IET. He is also a member of the technical committee of Language, Auditory and Music Branch of the acoustic society of China, and a member of the technical committee of the Speech Technology Industry Union. He was selected into the “1000 Overseas Talent Plan (Young Talent)” by Chinese central government in 2012. He was also selected into the Programme for Professor of Special Appointment (Eastern Scholar) at Shanghai Institutions of Higher Learning.
Yanmin Qian received the B.S. degree from the Department of Electronic and Information Engineering,Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2012. Since 2013, he has been with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), Shanghai, China, where he is currently an Associate Professor. From 2015 to 2016, he also worked as an Associate Research in the Speech Group, Cambridge University Engineering Department, Cambridge, U.K. He is a member of IEEE and ISCA, and the key member of Kaldi Develop Group. He has published more than 60 papers on speech and language processing with 1400+ citations, including the top conference: ICASSP, INTERSPEECH and ASRU. His current research interests include the acoustic and language modeling in speech recognition, speaker and language recognition, key word spotting, and multimedia signal processing.
My research interests are primarily concerned with the mechanism of speech processing: experimental phonetics, speech perception and production and articulatory acoustics. I'm particularly interested in the intersection of phonetics, computer science and neuroscience, for example prosody and its applilcations in speech technology, and manifestations in human brains. My previous research includes the perception and production of Cantonese lexical tones by speakers with different linguistic experiences, speech production by children with cochlear implants, quantative phonetic analysis of infant-directed speech etc. Lately I'm exploring subjective and objective evaluation of synthetic speech. I achieved my bachelor's degree from Beijing Normal University in 2011 and Ph.D. from the University of Melbourne in 2017.
