The Microsoft Research Asia Fellowship Program aims to empower and encourage PhD students in the Asia-Pacific region to realize their potential in computer science-related research. Over one hundred distinguished PhD candidates from 36 leading research academic institutions in China, Hong Kong SAR, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Singapore were nominated for the 2020 Microsoft Research Asia fellowships. After evaluating each application, MSRA review committee selected 12 outstanding PhD candidates whose exceptional talent and innovation in computer science-related research identifies them as emerging leaders in the Asia-Pacific region.

Long-term research goal: I am developing an interface that allows every human being to use a computer without any special ability or training, like internal organs controlled by autonomic nerves. We still have many barriers to use computers. To use current computer systems, we need not only training, but also, at least vision and hands, or hearing and voice. The training keeps many people away from computers. Not all people have vision or hearing enough. Computers remain a tool for privileged people. For this goal, I have been working on Silent Speech Interfaces.
