🙋 About me

I am an incoming Ph.D. student who will pursue a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Electrical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University (JHU). I work at Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) under the supervision of Prof. Najim Dehak, Laureano Moro-Velázquez and Jesús Villalba.

I graduated with Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E) program at JHU with the major of Electrical Engineering and the concentration of Human Language Technology in May 2023. I worked on Speech Diagnosis for Parkinson’s Disease in Prof. Najim Dehak’s lab.

I received the dual degrees: Bachelor of Engineering (Research and Development) (Honours) with the first class honours in Electronic and Communication Systems and Bachelor of Science in Statistics from The Australian National University (ANU) in December 2020.

My research interests include speech processing and speech diagnosis. Feel free to contact me via email: tcao7@jhu.edu.
