My research is aimed at getting a better understanding of how humans exchange information during communication (both verbally and non-verbally, using speech, gestures and facial expressions), which in turn may help for improving the way computers present information and communicate with humans. To achieve this, I am interested in combining insights from both computational linguistics as well as psycholinguistics.
