Research interests

My research interests are very wide falling into areas of speech signal processing, natural language processing as well as computational lingusic and machine vision. I am generally interested in machine learning techniques and their applications.

I am currently a PhD student working on Synchronous Linguistic and Visual Processing (SynProc) project under supervision of Dr. Frank Keller.

My previous work focused on animated conversational avatars, more specificly automatic animation based on speech signal.
