Research Profile

I am a Ph.D. student at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics advised by Prof. Christian Theobalt and Prof. Vera Demberg. I am also a member of the RTG 2853 "Neuroexplicit Models of Language, Vision, and Action".

My work involves exploring relations between speech, language and gestures/motion in human interactions, grounding human motion with language and enabling virtual humans to interact by means of multimodal learning.

Research Interests

  • Vision/Animation: Human Gesture Synthesis and Analysis, Multi-modal Motion Synthesis, Generative Modeling
  • Language:Relations b/w linguistic structures and gestures, Discourse and communication
