Brief 

Xiaoyu QIN
Hello! 
I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University (In cooperation with Prof Jia Jia).
Currently, I focus on the topic of Speech Foundation Models, which is an intersection of Speech Synthesis and Foundation Models.
My research interests include Multimedia, Artificial Intelligence, Affective Computing, and their applications. My past research interests include Theory of Evolutionary Algorithms and Optimisation.
