Dr Haizhou Li received the B.Sc, M.Sc and Ph.D degrees in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from the South China University of Technology (SCUT) in 1984, 1987 and 1990, respectively. He was a Research Assistant from 1988 to 1990 at the University of Hong Kong. In 1990, he joined SCUT as an Associate Professor where he became a Full Professor in 1994. From 1994 to 1995, he was a Visiting Professor at Nancy Research Centre of Computer Science (CRIN), France. In 1995, he became the Manager of the ASR group at the Apple-ISS Research Centre in Singapore where he led the research of Apple\'s Chinese Dictation Kit for Macintosh. In 1999, he was appointed as the Research Director of Lernout & Hauspie Asia Pacific, where he oversaw the creation of the world\'s first multimodal speech, pen and keyboard input solution for Chinese computing. From 2001 to 2003, he was the Vice President of InfoTalk Corp. Ltd in Singapore. Since 2003, he has been with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) in Singapore, where he is now the Department Head of Human Language Technology, and the Programme Manager of Social Robotics. He is also a Visiting Professor (Honorary) of the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications at University of New South Wales, Australia; Nokia Visiting Professor 2009, Nokia Foundation, Finland. Dr Li\'s current research interests include automatic speech recognition, speaker recognition, spoken language recognition, and natural language processing. He was a recipient of the National Infocomm Award 2001 and the TEC Innovator\'s Award 2004 in Singapore. He now serves as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing, and the Springer International Journal of Social Robotics. He is also a Vice President of the COLIPS, a Senior Member of IEEE, an Executive Committee Member of Asian Federation of NLP, and a Member of ACL.
