About me

Ph.D. student in Machine Learning for Human-Robot Interaction under the supervision of Hedvig Kjellström and Gustav Eje Henter. My research is on generative models of non-verbal behavior, such as hand gestures and facial expressions. You can watch me explaining it here. I am working in the HealthTech project EACare, where we aim to develop a robot system to detect early signs of Dementia from the communicative behavior. My part is non-verbal behavior generation.

Research

At the moment (Nov 2020), I am focused on semantically-aware  gesture generation
