I work on machine learning methods for intelligent and adaptive multimodal interfaces, including Speech Recognition, Spoken Language Understanding, Natural Language Generation, and Human-Robot Interaction. I have also applied this work in Technology Enhanced Learning using Virtual Characters. See my publications (bibtex here).
I am an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Speech and Language Processing, and ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems, and on the editorial board of Dialogue and Discourse.
