I am a researcher at Speech, Music and Hearing, KTH, Sweden. My research focuses on developing flexible spoken dialogue systems that to a large extent follows the principles of human-human communication. A natural part of human conversation is to adapt what we say and how we say it depending on our conversational partners and the dialogue context. My work focuses on analysis of human behaviours which are typically not modelled in spoken dialogue systems. These behaviours include pauses, cue phrases and backchannels, phenomena that serve important communicative functions in dialogue. The long-term goal of my research is to gain increased understanding of human-human communication as well as extended knowledge on how to design multimodal spoken dialogue systems.
