Dr. Meiru Mu

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences: Neuromechanics Section, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU-FHMS), where I am involved in the COMMIT/project Sensei. I work in the context of speech signal processing and affective computing, under supervision of Dr. Khiet Truong, who is an assistant professor at the Human Media Interaction group of the University of Twente (UT). My research focuses on the automatic analysis of speech data aiming to automatically detect and identify user's physical and mental state, such as exercise fatigue and human emotions. Models for mental and physical are developed and implemented on the smart phone for further testing and training.

My background lies in general pattern recognition and machine learning technology. I carried out most of my study in Beijing, China. In September 2008, I started my PhD research in Biometrics at the Institute of Information Science, Beijing Jiaotong University, China. In September 2011, I moved to University of Twente, The Netherlands, where I continued PhD research work at Signals and Systems group. In July 2013, I obtained my doctoral degree in computer science from University of Twente, with a thesis entitled by “Texture Representation for Low-Resolution Palmprint Recognition”. Later on, I worked as a post-doc for one year at the Services, Cybersecurity and Safety research group, University of Twente. The project was about face recognition in the mobile cameras for law enforcement. Since March 2015, I started working as a post-doc researcher at VU-FHMS in Amsterdam.
