Research

My research is focused on machine learning, speech recognition and intelligent user interfaces.  More specifically, I'm interested in:
  • Machine learning for recognition, recommendation and automation
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Interactive machine learning algorithms
  • Efficient learning methods (feature selection, active learning, online learning and so on)
  • Automatic scoring systems
  • Unsupervised/semi-supervised learning for speech recognition
