My previous education was at the University of the South Pacific, where I did my Bachelor of Software Engineering and Master of Science degrees. My thesis was on developing a deep learning method for predicting protein-peptide binding sites from protein sequences. I received Gold Medal and Prize for the most outstanding Master of Science thesis at the university that year.
Currently, I am interested in the physics of sound, human perception of speech, and communication technologies. For my Ph.D., I am investigating deep learning methods to automate assessment of speech signal transmission quality, and develop a model for identifying root causes of degradation in speech transmission.
