In July 2015, I joined the Department of Computing and Information Systems, The University of Melbourne, as a lecturer.

In March 2014, I received my PhD from The University of Melbourne. I became a research fellow at the same university afterwards.
During November 2013 - January 2014, I was an intern at Microsoft Redmond working on SkyDrive (now OneDrive).

During February 2009 - May 2009, I was an intern at Toshiba China R&D Center working on text to speech (TTS) projects.
