About me

I'm currently a PhD student in the area of adaptive conversational agents at KTH, The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.
The (tentative) topic of my PhD thesis is "Using social and physiological signals for user adaptation in conversational agents". My research interests are among others: multimodal interaction, generation of behavior for conversational agents and NLP.
