Short CV

Yue Zhang received her master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (M. Sc.) from Technische Universität München (TUM), one of the first three German Excellence Universities, in 2013. She is working towards her PhD degree as a researcher in the Machine Intelligence and Signal Processing Group at TUM's Institute for Human-Machine Communication, focusing her research on novel machine learning approaches for holistic computational paralinguistic. She is a reviewer for the IEEE Signal Processing Letters, the IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, and the ELSEVIER Computer Speech and Language. Her main area of involvement has been with the EU-FP7 starting grant project iHEARu.
