Afsaneh Asaei (co-advised; 2013)

Research Interests:

  • Array signal processing
  • Sparse component analysis
  • Statistical pattern recognition


Afsaneh Asaei received her B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology and M.Sc. (Hons.) in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology. She was a Fellow of Marie Curie on Speech Communication with Adaptive LEarning (SCALE) project and obtained her PhD from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2013. Her research interests include signal processing, machine learning and sparse signal recovery and acquisition. Her PhD theses entitled Model-based Sparse Component Analysis for Multiparty Distant Speech Recognition was supervised by Professor Bourlard and co-advised by Professor Cevher.
