I am a researcher in the area of spoken dialogue systems and empirical studies of human-human interaction at the Department of Speech, Music and Hearing, KTH. I have a M.A. in Cognitive Science from Linkoping University and I received my PhD in Speech Communication at KTH in 2010. My thesis work focused on developing more flexible and context sensitive generation in spoken dialogue systems.
In 2009 I took a leave of absence from KTH and visited Columbia University in New York, USA. At Columbia I worked as researcher on a project on language disorders in autistic children together with Noémie Elhadad at Department of Biomedical Informatics and Julia Hirschberg at the Department of Computer Science.
Since my dissertation, I have been involved in different research projects at KTH. In 2011, I received a three-year project research grant for young scientists – Classifying and deploying pauses for flow control in conversational systems (VR #2011-6152) – from the Swedish Research Council (VR).
