My name is Matthew Perez and I am a Computer Science Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan. I work with Dr. Emily Mower Provost at the Computational Human Artificial Intelligence (CHAI) Lab. My interest is broadly in using speech analysis and machine learning to create intelligent systems that understand principles relating to human health and behavior. Currently, my focus is on applying deep learning techniques to improve speech recognition for low resource applications (i.e. disordered speech).
I received my M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan and my B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Notre Dame.
