About Me

I am Anuj Diwan, a third year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Austin. I am fortunate to be co-advised by Prof. David Harwath and Prof. Eunsol Choi. I am part of the broader UT NLP group. My research interests are in the fields of Speech and Natural Language Processing. My current research focuses on multilingual speech generation and speech translation.

I received my B.Tech (with Honors) degree in Computer Science and a Minor degree in Statistics from IIT Bombay in 2021, where I had a wonderful time working with Prof. Preethi Jyothi and Prof. Sunita Sarawagi.

I have also spent some time interning at Google DeepMind (Summer 2023, with Yu Zhang and Ankur Bapna), Meta AI (Summer 2022, with Abdelrahman Mohamed, Wei-Ning Hsu and Ching-Feng Yeh), Adobe Research India (Summer 2020) and UCLouvain (Summer 2019).

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, quizzing, solving wordgames, and watching the latest movies and TV shows.
