Yan Tang joins Beckman as part-time faculty member

Yan Tang, an assistant professor of linguistics, will join Beckman's Illinois Language and Literacy Initiative within the Intelligent Systems research theme as a part-time faculty member. His current research focuses on speech technologies such as speech intelligibility enhancement in adverse listening conditions, computational modelling of speech perception in noise and perceptually motivated context-sensitive speech modification algorithms. His research interests also include speech perception and production in noise, psychoacoustics, source separation, and robust automatic speech recognition.

ILLI researchers interested in language from biological and psychological perspectives collaborate with researchers from Illinois' top-ranked engineering programs to build not only new knowledge, but new tools and applications.
