About me

I am a Senior Researcher of the Machine Learning Group at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA). I obtained my Ph.D degree from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2021, advised by Prof. Linli Xu and Prof. Enhong Chen. I received my bachelor’s degree in USTC in 2016.

My research interests lie in deep learning, natural language processing and multimodal learning, including generative AI on natural language, speech and video, such as text generation with large language models, speech synthesis and digital human generation, etc.

I’m always looking for highly motivated interns with good coding and math skills to work with me on machine learning and natural language processing. Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested (an internship period of at least 6 months is preferred). You can contact me through a@b, where a=junliangguo and b=microsoft.com.

I’m an amateur 5-dan Go player.
