Holy Lovenia

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST)


I’m pursuing an MPhil at HKUST and working on vision-language & NLP research as a part of Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research (CAiRE).



As of now, I’m researching in the field of multimodality (vision-language), multilinguality, and conversational AI.

You can take a look at my resume here.

If you are interested to collaborate or discuss, please feel free to reach out to me.


Aug 24, 2023 Oral presentation of our paper “Cross-Lingual Cross-Age Group Adaptation for Low-Resource Elderly Speech Emotion Recognition” at INTERSPEECH 2023!
Jul 19, 2023 Defended my MPhil thesis on “Advancing Vision-Language Understanding of Objects in Multimodal Conversational AI” and got an excellent remark from the committee. :star:
