Brief Introduction:

Prof. Dr. phil. et Ing. habil. Hongwei DING received her M.A. degree in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and her Dr. phil. and Dr.-Ing.habil. degrees from Technische Universität Dresden, Germany. Her research has concentrated on cross-linguistic studies, phonetics, prosody, and speech synthesis. She has gained extensive practical experiences in interdisciplinary fields, such as phonetics, prosody and speech technology.

She is a member of the PAC (Permanent Advisory Committee) of SProSIG (Special Interest Group on Speech Prosody). She has served on the scientific committees of many international conferences, and organized O-COCOSDA/CASLRE 2015 and Speech Prosody 2012 as program chair in Shanghai.
