Chanwoo Kim

Chanwoo Kim has been a software engineer at Google, Inc. since 2013. He was a speech scientist and software development engineer at Microsoft from 2011 to 2013. Dr. Kim received a Ph.D. from the Language Technologies Institute of the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science in 2010. He received his B.S and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University in 1998 and 2001, respectively. Dr. Kim’s doctoral research was focused on enhancing the robustness of automatic speech recognition systems in noisy environments. Toward this end he has developed a number of different algorithms for single-microphone applications, dual-microphone applications, and multiple-microphone applications which have been applied to various real-world applications. Between 2003 and 2005 Dr. Kim was a Senior Research Engineer at LG Electronics, where he worked primarily on embedded signal processing and protocol stacks for multimedia systems. Prior to his employment at LG, he worked for EdumediaTek and SK Teletech as a R&D engineer.
