Update 11/2023 – I’m exploring opportunities to start once I’ve finished my PhD. Reach out to chat!
I’m interested in communication and how we use it efficiently. My current research investigates how information encoded in the lexical and non-lexical channels of spoken communication affects perception, and how we can leverage these findings to build more efficient, perceptually-motivated representations of speech (and other multi-channel signals).
Translation: Spoken conversation is one of the most fundamental means we have for information transmission. How can we leverage the information encoded in both [what words we say]Lexical and [how we say them]Non-lexical to better understand human communication and augment human-machine interaction?
In my spare time, I play, sing, and listen to music. I enjoy climbing moutains or rocks (whichever are closer!) and teaching yoga.
Before starting my PhD, I worked on several ML & NLP research teams in the UK, Denmark, and Germany. Check out my resumé for more details.
