Hi! My name is Sri Garimella. I am a Machine Learning manager of Alexa Speech Recognition group at Amazon, Bangalore.
I lead a team that delivered the speech recognition system for launching the Echo devices (or Alexa) in India. Prior to that, I worked as a senior Machine Learning Scientist in Alexa Science group at Amazon.

I've a PhD from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Center for Language and Speech Processing at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA, and a Master of Engineering in Signal Processing from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. I've a rigorous theoretical understanding and pragmatic hands-on experience in building state-of-the-art speech recognition systems. I've six US patents issued and five US patents filed (or pending) in the area of machine learning/speech recognition. My research interests include deep neural networks, statistical machine learning, speech recognition and speaker verification.
