Chin-Hui Lee received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, in 1973, the M.S. degree in Engineering and Applied Science from Yale University, New Haven, in 1977, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Statistics from University of Washington, Seattle, in 1981.
After graduation, Dr. Lee joined Verbex Corporation, Bedford, MA, and was involved in research on connected word recognition. In 1984, he became affiliated with Digital Sound Corporation, Santa Barbara, where he engaged in research and product development in speech coding, speech synthesis, speech recognition and signal processing for development of the DSC-2000 Voice Server. Between 1986 and 2001, he was with Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey, where he became a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff and Director of the Dialogue Systems Research Department. His research interests include multimedia communication, multimedia signal and information processing, speech and speaker recognition, speech and language modeling, spoken dialogue processing, machine learning, biometric authentication, information retrieval, and bioinformatics. His research scope is reflected in a best seller, entitled "Automatic Speech and Speaker Recognition: Advanced Topics", published by the Kluwer Academic Publishers in 1996. From August 2001 to August 2002 he was a visiting professor at School of Computing, The National University of Singapore. In September 2002, he joined the Faculty of School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia.
Prof. Lee has participated actively in professional societies. He is a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, Communication Society, Computer Society, and the European Speech Communication Association. He is also a lifetime member of the Computational Linguistics Society in Taiwan. In 1991-1995, he was an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing. During the same period, he served as a member of the ARPA Spoken Language Coordination Committee. In 1995-1998 he was a member of the Speech Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and chaired the Speech TC from 1997 to 1998. In 1996 he helped promote the SPS Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee in which he is a founding member.
