About

I am a PhD student in the Social Cognitive Systems Group at Bielefeld University headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Kopp.

As part of the HiAvA-Project, I am developing AI-assisted methods to drive gesticulation on virtual agents in a multimodal XR-Cyberspace. My research interests lie in the analysis of human behaviour and its simulation using modern machine learning techniques. My goal is to build an adaptive system, that is able to generate appropriate co-speech gestures in realtime to be deployed in an avatar-based face-to-face interaction scenario, using the modalities available on different platforms.
