About me

Currently, I'm Juniorprofessor for Mobile Dialog Systems at the Institute for Information Technology and Communications at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg

My research is focused on reliable and trusted (spoken) dialog systems, in particular in interdisciplinary investigations of human-computer interaction and speaker anonymization. Thereby, I investigate the acoustics in terms of addressee detection, perceived charisma as well as the utilization of further interaction patterns, such as filled pauses or discourse particles within the scope of voice assistants. Furthermore, I create and use corpora of human computer interactions, such as Voice Assistant Conversation Corpus, and the Voice Assistant in the Wild Corpus. Feel free to have a look at my recent projects.
