My current research aims at enabling robots to acquire speech production skills by self-exploration and in
interaction with a human tutor. Particularly, I am interested in developmental robotics approaches,
including active learning strategies and babbling in motor and goal spaces. Further interests are
speech recognition and synthesis and neural networks.
