About Me

In the course of my education as a phonetician, I was engaged in various fields of application. Having a background in Romance studies, I started with the phonetics of foreign language learning, continued in the area of forensic phonetics, and am now working on phonetic accommodation in human-computer interaction. As spoken dialog systems become a part of our daily lives, I believe it is imperative to further investigate the behavior of their human interlocutors in order to incorporate these findings into the development of the systems.

I am part of the Phonetics and Phonology research group headed by Prof. Bernd Möbius. Our group belongs to the Language Science and Technology department at Saarland University, Saarbrücken.

I am pursuing a PhD on the topic of phonetic accommodation of human interlocutors in the context of human-computer interaction within the CHIC project.
