Biography


Wei Xue (雪巍) was born in October, 1989. Currently he is a research scientist at JD AI Research Lab, Beijing, where he is leading the research on front-end speech signal processing for robust speech recognition. He received the Bachelor degree in automatic control from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2010, and the Ph.D degree in pattern recognition and intelligent systems from Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. From August 2015 to September 2018 he was first a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher and then a Rresearch Associate in Speech and Audio Processing Group, Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London, UK. He was a visiting scholar at Université de Toulon, France in July 2015, and KU Leuven, Belgium in September 2016. Wei's research interests are in microphone arrays based speech signal processing, including source localization, speech enhancement/separation and blind system identification.
