Hi! Between June 2018 and November of 2023 I worked as a PhD student at the division of Speech, Music and Hearing (TMH). Since 2023, when I defended my thesis, and until the end of December 2023, I worked as a researcher at the same division. My main supervisor was Gabriel Skantze.
I worked with various topics about how social robots can interact and communicate with humans. My focus was figuring out how a scenario where the robot presents differs from open conversation. What do the reactions from the audience, or lack thereof, mean for the robot's presentation? In my PhD thesis, I explore dthese topics and how one can build a presenting system that takes the reactions of the audience into account.
